Port Kali Packages to Debian
Description of the project: There is a ongoing work inside the pkg-security team to port Kali linux packages to Debian. This has a great impact on both distros as Kali is based upon sid (which gives them all the nice things that Debian does to its packages, like QA) and it packages the tools that are not present on Debian, this means that a lot of Kali packages are already "on the way" to become a Debian package. This project is meant to make Buster the best Debian release for pentesting ever. The work will consist of gathering information about Kali packages that are not present on Debian and would be useful to our users, then the student will package this softwares under Debian.
