Question about seeking (finding) a sponsor
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I've packaged libchipcard (see below), and would like to see it included in debian.
- From the nm pages and related, I'm slightly confused about the appropriate order of
- - Getting my GPG-Key signed,
- - Finding a sponsor,
- - Applying as new maintainer, and
- - Filing an ITP.
Probably I'm just too stupid to look into the right docs, but I could not figure
it out, so I'd be glad if anyone could tell me.
About the package:
* Package name : libchipcard
Version : 0.7.1
Upstream Author : Martin Preuss <email@example.com>
* URL : http://www.libchipcard.de/
* License : GPL
Description : An API for smartcard readers
This library provides an API for accessing smartcards. Examples are memory
cards, as well as HBCI (home banking), German GeldKarte (electronic
small change), and KVK (health insurance) cards.
Informal addition: Via libopenhbci (already in debian, though without chipcard
support), gnucash could be used to provide HBCI-based online banking which is
offered by a large number of German banks.
Preliminary Packages: <http://vman.de/chipcard/>, not apt-getable atm (though I
have set up a mini-dinstall mirror at home, so I could add that if it helps).
The same packages are on upstream's download page.
(Sorry, if there are too many "German"s in this mail, but those are the uses
that I know of and which the author had in mind when writing it.)
