We have packaged version 4.9 of the server monitoring program monit for Debian 4.0 (Etch), since that distribution only contains version 4.8.1. While 4.9 contains no major changes, several small features were added which were quite useful to us (see the monit changelog for a full description of new features). This package was made by simply recompiling Stefan Alfredsson's official Debian package using the 4.9 source. Feedback is welcomed but as usual we cannot offer any support except on a best-effort basis, and we can't assume responsibility if this software trashes your harddrive, eats your leftover pizza, or otherwise causes trouble for you. That said, we hope you find it useful.
Update: we now provide binary packages for both the i386 and amd64 architectures.
