fwknop Uploaded to Debian Sid

fwknop in Debian sid After a few months of development, fwknop is now available as a Debian package in the Debian Sid distribution. Hopefully it won't be too long before it is also available through the Debian stable repository. Thanks to Franck Joncourt for developing the fwknop Debian package, and he has also created packages of gpgdir and fwsnort as well. To view fwknop in the APT package cache the following steps will do the trick: # cat >> /etc/apt/sources.list
deb unstable main
deb-src unstable main

# apt-cache policy fwknop-server
Installed: 1.9.8-1
Candidate: 1.9.8-1
Version table:
*** 1.9.8-1 0
500 unstable/main Packages

The sources associated with the package can be visualized with git as well.

On another note, fwknop is also now available within the Archlinux distribution, and the two IPTables::* perl modules that fwknop depends on (IPTables::ChainMgr and IPTables::Parse) are now available on CPAN.
