Apt-Method-SSH

Scott Penrose is a perl hacker with an interest in home automation. He has been playing with electronics since he was old enough to burn his fingers with a soldering iron.

I am no longer maintaining Apt Method SSH as it has now been replaced by an SSH method in Debian 3.0 (Woody) and higher.

On a personal note I have been trying to get this method into Debian for 2 years with rejection from the Apt Developers who thought it was not of use. I find it interesting that it has now been put into Apt. This is a very poor example of how an open source development should be run. Those people should realise that - just because they did not want it - does not make it useless to others - as they obviously discovered.

Open Source is something to be encouraged. I develop open source, and use open source for everything I can, even my close source developments.
