  Description     : Creates a TCP tunnel through http and https proxies

This package installs http-proxy-tunnel.  Http-proxy-tunnel creates
TCP tunnels through a series of http and https proxies.  It differs
from other tunnelling programs such as corkscrew in that with the
right additional magic (described in the README) you can create an
ssh tunnel using the same TCP port web pages are served from.

The debian package has already been done.  It can be found here:

I suggest 

"tunnelling utility through HTTP and HTTPS proxies"

to better fit the write style recommended in DevRef.

DevRef suggests one of these should form a sentence:

  hpt is a <synopsis>
  hpt is <synopsis>
  hpt are <synopsis>

None of which work for the current synopsis or your
suggested update.  However this does work for my
synopsis:

  hpt <synopsis>, 
as in ...
  htp creates a TCP tunnel through http and https proxies

Which I think is in the spirit of DevRef, if not
exactly matching it.  I can't find an easy way to
turn your synopsis into a sentence the way DevRef 
suggests, so I think the current one is a better
fit.

Capitalising "Create" is a mistake.  It should be
"create", and I will change it to that.

Subject: hpt: changing back from ITP to RFP

thanks

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of hpt back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 18 months.

If you are still interested in adopting hpt, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 465809 ITP: hpt -- Creates a TCP tunnel through http and https proxies
 owner 465809 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <465809@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team
