This package provides a library and a command-line tool named wormhole, which makes it possible to get arbitrary-sized files and directories (or short pieces of text) from one computer to another. The two endpoints are identified by using identical "wormhole codes": in general, the sending machine generates and displays the code, which must then be typed into the receiving machine.

JoshStrobl added a project: Needs Maintainer.
JoshStrobl added a subscriber: JoshStrobl.

Accepted for the inclusion under the requirement that it needs a maintainer that actually uses this.

I can package it but I'll have to package some new python depends.

@kyrios123 could you check python-ipaddress ? with it installed, wormhole still claims for it, maybe you can add the python3 version of ipadress.
