pwgen - generate pronounceable passwords

About

I am the well known password generator pwgen. You can read more about me on my manual page.

How did I get here on GitHub?

Philipp took my sources from the sourceforge project site and republished me as a Git repository here on GibHub.

To get there, he downloaded the .tar.gz packages from the download section of the project on sf.net. A git cvsimport was not possible as newer versions were not checked-in to CVS on SF.net. To automatically create the repository, he used the following Bash Script:

#!/bin/bash

for version in 2.0 2.01 2.02 2.03 2.04 2.05 2.06
do
    wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/pwgen/files/pwgen/$version/pwgen-$version.tar.gz/download
done

mkdir pwgen
cd pwgen
git init
cd ..

for archive in $(ls pwgen*tar.gz)
do
    tar -xf $archive
    cd pwgen; git rm -rf *; cd ..
    archive_dir=$(basename $archive .tar.gz)
    mv $archive_dir/* pwgen/
    cd pwgen; git add .; git commit -m "automatic commit for $archive_dir"; cd ..
    rm -rf $archive_dir
done

For an overview over the current status on Debian & Ubuntu have a look at the Debian package tracking system (including information about bugs etc): http://packages.qa.debian.org/p/pwgen.html. Also helpful: Ubuntu's Bugtracker for pwgen.
