  Version         : 1.1
  Upstream Author : Dave Jones <davej@redhat.com>

  Description     : A Linux System call fuzz tester

As 'fuzz testing' suggests, trinity calls syscalls at random, with random 
arguments. Where Trinity differs is that the arguments it passes are not 
purely random.
If a syscall took, for example, a file descriptor as an argument,
one of the first things kernels does is validate that fd, if is not valid the 
kernel would just reject it as -EINVAL.
So on startup, Trinity creates a list of file descriptors, by opening pipes, 
scanning sysfs, procfs, /dev, and creates a bunch of sockets using random 
network protocols. Then when a syscall needs an fd, it gets passed one of 
these at random.

Trinity also shares those file descriptors between multiple threads, which 
causes havoc sometimes.

The chances of Trinity, the desktop environment, being packaged in Debian are 
very low.  I wouldn't worry about it.  Also, it would have many source 
packages, none of which would likely be named trinity, so I doubt it would be 
an issue in any case.

At 1st I thought it was about the desktop environment
http://www.trinitydesktop.org/

Maybe it should be called something different?

trinity desktop (which is not shipped within debian) does not ship any
binary named that way (AFAIK) and their packages have the kde- preffix

so, i think name is ok

Dear Gustavo,

there is also http://trinityrnaseq.sourceforge.net/, althouth I can not
say if it will be packaged for Debian or not in the future.

Definitely,

but please consider whether it would make sense to call your package
trinity-fuzz or something else.  If the software you package is not of broad
use, then "Trinity" is likely to become the name of other works.  If they are
more popular, then it may be that renaming packages will be necessary (think
about the renaming of git to gnuit for instance).  You can pre-emptively
avoid that problem by not calling your package trinity.

Have a nice day,
