  Description     : Utility that allows users to request their sysadmin to install some package

apt-wishlist allows users without access to root to request some package to be
installed on the system in a very easy way, by just listing the wished packages
as command line arguments. The script filters the invalid entries out and then
the request is sent by mail in a format that eases automatic processing.

Could you explain why a single, trivial script should have its own
package in the archive?

Thanks,

Hi,
Mainly because I thought it can be useful for users without root access to
ask for a package to be installed. It certainly is trivial (I won't deny
that), but AFAIK there's nothing like this in the archive (if there is,
please tell me so).
Of course, I can understand this may not be "big" enough for its own
package. If so, no problem and thanks for your review.
Cheers and keep up the great work!
