  Description     : Daemon that run personalized scripts when is alone in the
network

 This Daemon detects periods when nobody is using the network and makes use of
 of them by launching various user-defined services.

 Intended to help you get the most out of your network. homealoned launches
 sync scripts, torrent, tor relay, or anything else that might swamp your
 netwok or otherwise annoy you if launched at the wrong time.

 Specially thought out for home servers.

This description gave me the impression that homealoned would detect
when the network is idle. When I read the source it seems to require
that all machines are actually really disconnected from the network. You
might want to clarify this in the package description. It seems to ping
192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.254 and thinks that if it gets no replies the
network is not being used. When I read the description I assumed it'd
look at the actual bandwidth statistics using UPnP or SNMP.

Improved description of the package:

This Daemon detects periods when nobody is using the network by
pinging it and makes use of it by launching various user-defined
services.

I hope it helps clarify how the program works :)

Hi,

A long time ago, you expressed interest in packaging homealoned. Unfortunately,
it seems that it did not happen. In Debian, we try not to keep ITP bugs open
for a too long time, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to
refrain from packaging the software.

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

 retitle 681704 ITP: homealoned -- Daemon that run personalized scripts when is alone in the network
 owner 681704 !
 thanks

It is also a good idea to document your progress on this ITP from time to
time, by mailing <681704@bugs.debian.org>.  If you need guidance on how to
package this software, please reply to this email, and/or contact the
debian-mentors@lists.debian.org mailing list.

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