Description Walter Cervini 2006-10-11 19:10:14 EDT
Spec URL: http://www.softwarelibre777.com/volp/snitch.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.softwarelibre777.com/volp/snitch-0.0.1-0.fc5.volp.src.rpm
Description: Snitch  parses  a  configuration file which you provide (see the snitch README for instructions on how to make a config file)  and  creates  tc
(traffic control) commands which, when you run them, will configure the
built-in packetshaping utilities of your Linux box.   The  tc  commands
are written to STDOUT.
It  was  written  in conjunction with another project, l7-filter, which
consists of a kernel patch to allow shaping on application-level proto-
cols.  Both projects can be found on SourceForge

and would like to continue the process then please do the following:

 1) Please carefully read ALL of these two pages:


    and verify and (where necessary) fix your package so that it 
    follows all of the rules, guidelines, etc.

 2) Please look at some successful past submissions and see what 
    their spec files currently resemble.  There are a large number 
    of them in CVS which you can see on-line at:


    and it is a good idea to study and emulate them -- especially 
    those that might be similar in type/function.

 3) Please consider packing something else for your first attempt.
    The home page for snitch says:

       "Snitch is not really functional and is not under 
        active development."

    which is not an encouraging statement!

Also, I noticed that you requested sponsorship.  According to:


you should send the request only after your first package has been
