Subject: ITP: tcptrace -- analysis tool for tcpdump output
Date: Mon, 12 Mar 2001 13:21:49 -0500
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

Tcptrace is a tool capable of analyzing and reporting on tcpdump output.
It can generate summaries of the output or output data files for use
with xplot (note that this is not the xplot in Debian, but xplot written
by Tim Shepard of the MIT Lab for Computer Science).  Graph data can be
created for throughput, RTT, time sequences, segment size, and cwin.

The license is BSD style, with Ohio University in place of UC.

thanks
noah

The second place to search in this situation is the WNPP list
(http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp).

In this case, the relevant bug is:

http://bugs.debian.org/89421

* #89421: ITP: tcptrace -- analysis tool for tcpdump output
Package: wnpp; Severity: wishlist; Reported by: "Noah L. Meyerhans" <frodo@morgul.net>; 328 days old.

So it has been claimed (328 days ago), but apparently forgotten.

Well, I wouldn't say "forgotten".  I'm well aware of the fact that I
announced the ITP.  The reason I never uploaded the package is that it
depends on xplot, but *not* the xplot in Debian; the xplot written by
Tim Sheppard of MIT LCS.  At the time, I did not have time to Debianize
Tim's xplot tool.  I still don't.  Maybe I will get around to it some
day, but I can't say when.

So that's what held up the tcptrace Debian package.

I see.  The WNPP bug is a good place to record such information, not only so
that interested parties can find out the status of the package, but so that
someone else can help with issues like this.  When an ITP has no messages
for almost a year, it tends to look forgotten.

Perhaps it should be retitled to an RFP, or else a separate RFP should be
filed for this alternate xplot if there isn't one already?

I have uploaded tcptrace, finally completing my ITP that was filed a
year and a half ago.  It is awaiting ftpmaster's approval before it can
move to unstable.
