  * debian/postinst: Don't pass --no-create-home to adduser, because
    we attempt to chown a home directory in the next command, which
    will fail if it's missing. (Closes: #640599)

anon-proxy: Proxy to surf the web anonymously

 This package contains the JAP client which acts as a local proxy between
 your browser and the insecure Internet. All requests for web pages are
 handled by JAP and are encrypted several times. The encrypted messages
 are sent through a chain of intermediate servers (named Mixes) to the
 final destination on the Internet.
 Multiple layers of encryption protect all messages. A Mix collects
 messages in a batch, totally changes their appearance (removes one
 layer of encryption) and forwards them all at the same time, but
 in a different order. An adversary may observe all communication links,
 however he cannot determine a relation between incoming and outgoing
 packets. A surfer remains anonymous within the group of all users
 of the service.
 Demonstrably, the system protects your privacy as long as the Mix
 works correctly. Unfortunately nobody knows whether a certain Mix
 is actually trustworthy or not. Therefore we use a whole chain of
 Mixes. Each message passes through several Mixes and the entire chain
 of Mixes has to be corrupt to successfully observe the user's
 activities. The chaining effectively prevents single Mixes from
 observing. This is the meaning of strong anonymity: Even the
 anonymity service itself cannot spy on its users.
