  Description     : Whatmask is a small program to help with
                    calculating a range of network settings

Whatmask can work in two modes. The first mode is to invoke Whatmask
with only a subnet mask as the argument. In this mode Whatmask will
echo back the subnet mask in four formats, plus the number of useable
addresses in the range.

To use Whatmask in its second mode execute Whatmask with any ip address
within the subnet, followed by a slash ('/'), followed by the subnet
mask in any format. (e.g. 192.168.0.23/255.255.255.224, or
192.168.0.23/27)

Whatmask will echo back the following:

    * The netmask in the following formats: CIDR, Netmask, Netmask
      (Hex) Wildcard Bits
    * The Network Address
    * The Broadcast Address
    * The number of Usable IP Addresses
    * The First Usable IP Address
    * The Last Usable IP Address

Hi,

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

 retitle 607156 ITP: whatmask -- Whatmask is a small program to help with calculating a range of network settings
 owner 607156 !
 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 <607156@bugs.debian.org>.

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