I have created a port for fail2ban. From the developers: "Fail2Ban  
scans log files like /var/log/pwdfail or /var/log/apache/error_log and  
bans IP that makes too many password failures".

Fail2ban is written in Python and I am using the python26 port group.

I would like keep the name as fail2ban but am asking if I should  
rename it py26-fail2ban?

As far as I can tell fail2ban has three scripts in ${prefix}/bin that  
all start with a shabang so even if someone has a different version of  
python selected this should be ok I think.
