Re: Bug#900286: ITP: spm -- simple password manager




* Paride Legovini <pl@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>, 2018-05-28, 17:33:
spm is a single fully POSIX shell compliant script

Somehow these kind of grandiose claims are never true.

This script:
- has a shebang[0];
- passes -G to grep (not in POSIX);
- uses readlink(1) (not in POSIX).

But anyway, this is an implementation detail, so I don't think it belongs to the package description.

with basic tools such as find(1) and tree(1).

find(1) is in POSIX, so I'm not sure it was mentioned explicitly.
tree(1) is not "basic". It's obscure.

Passwords are stored as GPG encrypted files with directories funtioning as (sub)groups.

Typo: funtioning -> functioning

In Debian the script will be installed as 'spm.sh'

That would be against Policy §10.4.
Please talk to upstream about choosing a different name.
