Bug#921076: ITP: pound -- reverse proxy, load balancer and HTTPS front-end for Web servers




Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Carsten Leonhardt <leo@xxxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : pound
  Version         : 2.8
  Upstream Author : Robert Segall
* URL             : http://www.apsis.ch/pound/
* License         : GPL with OpenSSL exemption
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : reverse proxy, load balancer and HTTPS front-end for Web servers

Pound was developed to enable distributing the load among several
Web-servers and to allow for a convenient SSL wrapper for those Web
servers that do not offer it natively. Pound can also issue HTTP
redirects.


This is to reintroduce pound into the archive after it had been
removed in February 2018. The problem had been that it didn't build
with OpenSSL 1.1, but patches exist now.

If the previous maintainer (Cc'ed) is still interested, I suggest a
co-maintainership.
