Default Bug#567816: ITP: htb-gen -- Simple and effective home/small/medium ISP bandwidth solution

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

Package name: htbgen
Version: 20070223+git
Upstream Author: Luciano Ruete <luciano at praga org ar>

Description: Simple and effective home/small/medium ISP bandwidth solution
htb-gen is meant to be an easy, scalable and yet powerfull bandwidth
management tool.
You can set limits on up/down rates from the bandwidth budget for each
host or network that goes trough your router/firewall.
Priorized traffic (web, mail, gaming, ftp, voip, streaming) is
preferred over Junk traffic (kazaa, emule, etc). Dynamic
bandwith borrow and re-assignation is done between host thanks to
HTB boundaries.
Due to htb-gen being based into bash-like scriping, and then nature of
HTB to classify and inject traffic into the network, the capability of
getting it embedding into router/firewalls is an awesome feature, even into
boxes with extremely low resources, in contrast to other class-based
queueing algorithms, like Qdisc and others.
Side note, the packet clasification is done by iptables
