Subject: RFP:zuluCrypt - a frontend to cryptsetup and tcplay allowing GUI based management of LUKS,PLAIN and TRUECRYPT encrypted volumes

Small description:
zuluCrypt is a front end to cryptsetup,a linux native solution for hard
drive encryption. As a GUI frontend,zuluCrypt makes it easy to use
cryptsetup to manage PLAIN,LUKS as well as TRUECRYPT encrypted
volumes(atleast version 1.6.0 of cryptsetup and 1.0.0 of tcplay are
required for full truecrypt volume support).

Introduction:
Permission to introduce myself, i am the founder and current maintainer of
the project mentioned above.I found the project to fill a gap i was
experiencing in my own personal management of encrypted volumes and though
to go public with it to share it with the whole linux community.The
original idea was to give cryptsetup a GUI frontend that will match in
functionality to truecrypt GUI to allow an easy management of cryptsetup
volumes.

cryptsetup[1] in version 1.6.0 got the ability to open truecrypt volumes
and tcplay[2] (version 1.0 to be released shortly) was founded and a front
end to these two great projects gives zuluCrypt a unified,"one stop GUI
solution" to management of LUKS,PLAIN and TRUECRYPT volumes.

I am,in this email,requesting for this package to be included in debian to
allow its derivations to easily integrate it in their package systems.

During packaging I found that in its current (v4.6.7) form zuluCrypt
requires zulu*-cli to be setuid binaries.
I'm not comfortable with uploading the package with the setuid binaries
present in it even when only users of a special group can execute them.
You can follow the discussion with upstream at [1].

Laszlo and I have almost finished the packaging work which remains
available [2] at collab-maint for anyone willing to continue the
packaging and maintenance work.

There is also a similar but simpler GUI called palimpsest which provides
some of zuluCrypt's features in gnome-disk-utility [3] without using
setuid binaries.

Thanks,
Balint
