Package: nagios-plugins
Version: 1.4.16-1
Severity: minor

Nagios enterprises recently "hijacked" the nagios-plugins domain, so the plugins got renamed as well. See http://tech.slashdot.org/story/14/01/19/0454222/nagios-plugins-web-site-taken-over-by-nagios and https://www.monitoring-plugins.org/news/new-project-name.html for reference. 

At the very least the homepage in the source package should move from http://nagiosplug.sourceforge.net to https://www.monitoring-plugins.org/ ; also, the package name should probably be renamed to monitoring-plugins.
