Description: installer package for the publicfile http and ftp server
This package downloads, builds and installs publicfile,
as supplied by Daniel J. Bernstein. The generated Debian package
is called "publicfile".
Publicfile is a http and ftp server, written by Daniel J. Bernstein in
1999; it didn't change a lot after that. Modern features are not
supported. However, if you're looking for a small, simple and secure
webserver, which integrates with the runit and daemontools UNIX service
managers, publicfile will suit your needs.

This installer package downloads the publicfile .tar.gz file from
the upstream website, combines it with Debian packaging information
from the package maintainer's website; then builds a publicfile Debian
package, and installs that. When installing this installer package,
one is given the option to postpone downloading and installing
publicfile.
