Konrad Rosenbaum <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: gpl
Other License: 
Package: Random Daemon
System name: randd
Type: 2

RandD is a more configurable replacement for the EGD (Entropy gathering daemon) 
written in ANSI-C. It will be able to collect random bits via various sources 
(eg. /dev/random, rand()-libc-call, noise recorded at the sound card). It will 
be useable as a random source for gnupg and EGD-conformant TLS implementations.

(How do other people come up with 20 lines?)

There is no official project page yet, but you can get the sources from:

Other Software Required:
*POSIX environment (yet only tested on Debian GNU/Linux)
*sound driver-headerfiles (active driver not required, will be an option later 

Other Comments:
I\'ll need some help translating the documentation to texinfo (yet I only 
supplied HTML). Can you point me to a good example showing the minimal patterns 
needed to create some basic documentation?
