I would like to contribute and maintain the 'httperf' package:

 o http://code.google.com/p/httperf/ (Homepage)
 o http://httperf.googlecode.com/files/httperf-0.9.0.tar.gz  (Download location)

The package can be found in the following distros:

 o http://packages.debian.org/httperf
 o http://packages.ubuntu.com/source/httperf

Here is the setup.hint file:

sdesc: "A tool for measuring web server performance"
ldesc: "Httperf is a tool for measuring web server performance. It provides a flexible facility for generating
various HTTP workloads and for measuring server performance. The focus of httperf is not on implementing
one particular benchmark but on providing a robust, high-performance tool that facilitates the construction
of both micro- and macro-level benchmarks. The three distinguishing characteristics of httperf are its
robustness, which includes the ability to generate and sustain server overload, support for the HTTP/1.1
and SSL protocols, and its extensibility to new workload generators and performance measurements."
