#4682: New Package: haveged-1.9.1
 Reporter:  bdubbs@…     |      Owner:  blfs-book@…
     Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  low          |  Milestone:  current
Component:  BOOK         |    Version:  SVN
 Severity:  normal       |   Keywords:

 Provides additional entropy to /dev/random.  Goes in security section.

 Build is simple CMMI.  make check is quick.  Overall about 0.1 SBU.  Will
 need a boot script, but we really only need to start it with
 /usr/sbin/haveged.  I don't think options are needed.  We will need a boot
 script, but only to start.  I don't see a reason for a stop or restart

 We are a little too close to package freeze to put this into 7.5.
