  Description     : PGP signing, verification, encryption and decryption program

The netpgp library is a BSD-licensed library for managing PGP keys.

On top of the library, the netpgp command can digitally sign files and
verify that the signatures attached to files were signed by a given
user identifier.  netpgp can also encrypt files using the public or
private keys of users and, in the same manner, decrypt files which
were encrypted.

The netpgpkeys utility can also be used to generate a new key-pair for
a user.  This key is in two parts, the public key (which can be used
by other people) and a private key.

Shouldn't the description mention 'OpenPGP' somewhere?  s/PGP
keys/OpenPGP keys/ would be a suitable place for instance.

Good point!  Actually, both the short and long descriptions are
taken verbatim from the package's NetBSD pkgsrc metadata, but
there's no reason they must be the same in Debian :)  I'll reword
them in the RFS in a couple of days.

Thanks!

G'luck,
Peter

Hi,

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

 retitle 599753 ITP: netpgp -- PGP signing, verification, encryption and decryption program
 owner 599753 !
 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 <599753@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
