snoopy is merely a shared library that is used as a wrapper to the execve() function provided by libc as to log every call to syslog (authpriv). system administrators may find snoopy useful in tasks such as light/heavy system monitoring, tracking other administrator's actions as well as getting a good 'feel' of what's going on in the system (for example Apache running cgi scripts).

So we abort if we are not sure about this. * Temporarily Override snoopy: sharedobject-in-library-directory- missing-soname lib/ - lintian is right, but this change cannot be in lenny. #502712. * Temporarily Override snoopy: description-contains-homepage The Homepage stanza is in the description on purpose, and will go away post-lenny. #502713. * Add -e to postinst and config
