Hello,

The package description could be improved, to mention what the package
is doing :
Is it executed at boot time (I doubt so), or is it use to configure the
bootload and/or the firmware?

Also, what kind of security does it configures? (define a boot password,
protect the access to the firmware? configure the boot sequence, etc.)

If it configures the firmware, does one needs that tool to revert the
changes, or can it be done from the firmware itself?

Thanks,

Franklin

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of bitfrost 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 bitfrost, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 579076 ITP: bitfrost -- Python library for BIOS security on the OLPC XO laptop
 owner 579076 !
 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 <579076@bugs.debian.org>.

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