Package: ccrypt 1.6-1 [2003-12-14]
Description: A utility for encrypting and decrypting files and streams
Proposer: Andreas Seidl
Release directory (for use with setup.exe):
Aye votes: Ronald Landheer-Cieslak [1/3]
Status: Package available.
HOLD-UPS: Not enough votes (need 2 more). No "good to go" review.

Two remarks, as an incentive to get a review:
The package builds basically out of the box, but then there is a

Correspondence with the author revealed, that by changing a line in the
configure.in file (and running autoconf) one can archive, that ccrypt
uses its own drop-in replacement.
To try it out (-t is for the "timid", i.e. the password is asked twice):
$ ccencrypt -t mypasswds.txt
Enter encryption key:
Enter encryption key: (repeat)
$ ccdecrypt mypasswds.txt.cpt
Enter decryption key:
