Subject: ITP: idiocy -- a warning shot to people browsing the internet insecurely
Date: Thu, 28 Oct 2010 10:04:51 -0430
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal
Owner: Juan Angulo Moreno <juan@apuntale.com>
Package name: Idiocy
Version: 0.1
Upstream Author: Jonty Wareing
URL: http://github.com/jonty/idiocy
License: Public Domain
Description: A warning shot to people browsing the internet insecurely.

Idiocy quietly watches for people insecurely visiting twitter on
public wifi networks,
then hijacks their session to post a tweet warning them about the
dangers. It was
written in response to the release of Firesheep, which will result in
a huge increase
in session stealing attacks, with no defence other than forcing people
to use SSL.

Do we really need a package for this?

No.  But half of the stuff we package is mostly useless (to the large
majority of our users), so that doesn't mean much.

The problem I see with this one is that it actually breaks the law in a
lot of places, while trying to masquerade as a "friendly service to
others".  I'd rather it was not packaged.

retitle 601691 RFP: idiocy -- a warning shot to people browsing the internet insecurely

thanks

Hi,

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

 retitle 601691 ITP: idiocy -- a warning shot to people browsing the internet insecurely
 owner 601691 !
 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 <601691@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
