* Package name     : entropy-broker
* Version          : 0.6
* Upstream Author  : Folkert van Heusden <folkert@vanheusden.com>
* URL              : http://www.vanheusden.com/entropybroker/
* License          : (GPLV2)
* Programming Lang : C++
* Description      : Entropy Broker allows you to distribute entropy
data (random values) to /dev/random devices from other systems.

Description: Entropy Broker allows you to distribute entropy data
(random values) to /dev/random devices from other systems.
Entropy Broker is an infrastructure consisting of client-daemons that
fill /dev/random and server-daemons that feed the central entropy
broker-server.
The server-daemons can gather random values by measuring timer frequency noise,
analysing noise from a unused audio-device, noise from a video source
(webcam, tv-card) and random values from a real hardware RNG (random
number generator).

Martijn van Brummelen

Hi,

Since I don't have enough time to package entropybroker, people are
welcome to package it if they want to. If needed I can help.
Package is easy to build but needs a bit of patching.
Keep in mind that it does use openssl libary's .
The upstream maintainer is very active and open.

Regards,
Martijn van Brummelen

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of entropy-broker back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

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

 retitle 545148 ITP: entropy-broker -- allows you to distribute entropy data (random values) to /dev/random devices from other systems
 owner 545148 !
 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 <545148@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
