around this.

I might be able to help with the packetfence packaging.  I'm currently
using packetfence on Debian, but in a non-packaged form.

Have you begun work on the packages?  Is there a public repository for
your work?  Have you considered using alioth?

noah

You wrote "I think Debian need to use NAS tecnology too, and no have any other implementation

NAS != NAC

typo? ;-)

Package: wnpp

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---

Hi,

I'm considering rolling PacketFence on a dozen Debian servers in a few
months. Has anyone further looked into packaging PacketFence ? I suppose
I could at least help test, maybe help packaging also. With its RHEL
targeting and intrusive integration with apache, dhcp, snort et al. it
doesn't seem to be packaging for the faint of heart.

Cheers

Arthur

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of packetfence back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

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

 retitle 503090 ITP: packetfence -- PacketFence is a Free and Open Source network access control (NAC) system.
 owner 503090 !
 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 <503090@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
--
