The file URL is the same.
About kickproc.conf & kickproc.spec. These files should not be copyrightable, especially *.conf.

  kickproc - utility, performs actions on processes matched conditions

This utility usually runned as cron task.
On each call it builds list of processes and matches each of processes
against conditions list readed from configuration file.
If process matched conditions, specified action performed.
Action is shell command. Usually it is renice(8) or kill(1).
For security reasons it is preferred to run kickproc from separate
non-root user and use L<super(1)> or L<sudo(8)> to perform actions.

Usually kickproc used by system admin to renice long running
user computing tasks and to kill suspended/deadlocked applications like
Midnight Commander, Acroread, Mozilla.


Other Software Required:
  Perl, Proc::ProcessTable perl module from CPAN, any Unix flavor
