 Useful with cron jobs.  It can use a cron script file as its own lock
 file, avoiding the need to create new files to do locking.

Is there a better alternative available in the Debian archive already?

Hi,

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

 retitle 660216 ITP: run-with-lockfile -- Simple binary to run command with lock file tracking
 owner 660216 !
 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 <660216@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
