I am looking for an upload sponsor for my adoption of libghttp and
libhttp-ghttp-perl as a new maintainer. This is my first actual RFS, and
ideally I would like a sponsor who is willing to see me through the NM
process if my work is good. I selected these because I have also ITA'ed
axkit (which depends on them) and a collection of related packages, which I
am working on testing thoroughly before sending an RFS.
Candidate packages for libghttp (the original GNOME HTTP client library) and
libhttp-ghttp-perl (a Perl module wrapped around libghttp) are in my
debarchiver repository at http://www-static.sane.net/debian/. They are
lintian and linda clean, and debian/rules has been reworked in each to
reflect what I understand to be current packaging practice. The libghttp
package includes a fix for the one outstanding bug in the BTS; regression
testing with other packages that depend on libghttp would be very welcome.
The key with which they are signed (ID 7D3E9B5F) is one that I am using to
work through technical issues with auto-signing. I would like some guidance
with regard to primary key / subkey best practices before I generate a
permanent private key and seek to join the web of trust.
