We (as in Jan Wagner and me) would prefer a naming like
nagios-plugins-openmanage. But maybe its better to not add every plugin into
a new package. Unfortunatly I'm currently swamped with icinga, check_mk and
nagios3. Would somebody else maybe build a skeleton for a general package
including several plugins. 

My current ideas are as follows (others: feel free to add more ideas):

* Name: nagios-plugins-extra
* Description should contain the included plugins (oneliner should be enough) 
* Copyright should list every plugin 
* Maybe source3.0 with multiple tarballs should be used, maybe not (I'm no
friend of 3.0)
* Dependencies of plugins should downgraded to recommends or suggestions and
should be mentioned in README.Debian

Any volunteers?


P.S. subscription to the list is (afaik) not moderated. But I'll have a look
on it later if I have the password for list administration
