I'm not sure what purpose it would serve.  The package is pretty much
independent of the distro version.

I didn't realize that.  I'll fix it with my next set of edits.

I've copied the SRPM into http://www.math.uh.edu/~tibbs/denyhosts

BTW, I've found that after making this package that unfortunately
DenyHosts doesn't really fit my requirements because it doesn't age
out entries.  So a user unlucky enough to mistype his passwords five
times in total from the same IP gets blocked, regardless of the
frequency of the mistakes.  Crap.  So I have to decide whether to
improve my Python by hacking on DenyHosts, to take the easy road and
rewrite it in Perl.  Or, hey, I've been meaning to learn Ruby.
