Default Bug#491818: RFP: apt-dater -- terminal-based remote package update manager

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name : apt-dater
Version : 0.5.7
Upstream Author : Andre Ellguth <ellguth@ibh.de>
Thomas Liske <liske@ibh.de>
* URL : http://www.ibh.de/apt-dater/
* Programming Lang: C, Perl
Description : terminal-based remote package update manager

apt-dater provides an ncurses frontend for managing package updates on
a large number of remote hosts using SSH. It supports Debian-based hosts
as well as rug (e.g. openSUSE) and yum (e.g. CentOS) based systems.

The managed hosts are managed using SSH with public key authentification.
The apt-dater-host package provides an abstraction layer for the package
managing system. Therefor it is possible to manage apt, rug, yum etc. based
systems with apt-dater.
This package helps to keep a huge number of hosts up to date.

We are developing apt-dater as a native debian package and would like to
see it to become part of the Debian project. We are looking for someone
to sponsor or maintain the package since we are no Debian Maintainers.
