  Description     : dupmerge2 finds and hardlinks identical files

dupmerge2 finds identical files in a given directory, identify identical files
and hardlink them to save space. It has the ability to produce ouput for 
zenity --progress. 

The initial concept is from dupmerge 1.73 by Phil Karn, has less features but 
hopefully offers better performance. It adds the ability to output to zenity 
progress bar and scans the directory with ftw. It should also better handle 
existing hardlinks (skipping the file comparison).

How is different from fdupes and what's the advantages over it
justifying its inclusion in Debian?

We've got a bunch of such tools in Debian already, and ITPs for more.
How does this one compare to, say, pmatch, hardlink, or fdupes?

Also rdfind on Debian!

rdfind was interesting since 
 * it has dryrun feature
 * it does not read all the file contents.
 * it is O(Nlog(N)).

PS: I can not find pmatch (? http://pmatch.rubyforge.org/ ?) on Debian
yet.

Subject: dupmerge2: changing back from ITP to RFP
Date: Mon, 27 May 2013 15:24:13 +0200
retitle 643011 RFP: dupmerge2 -- dupmerge2 finds and hardlinks identical files
noowner 643011
tag 643011 - pending
thanks

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of dupmerge2 back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting dupmerge2, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 643011 ITP: dupmerge2 -- dupmerge2 finds and hardlinks identical files
 owner 643011 !
 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 <643011@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
--
