RFS: krecipes (updated package)
I am looking for a sponsor for the new version 1.0~beta2-1
of my package "krecipes".
It builds these binary packages:
krecipes - recipes manager for KDE
krecipes-data - recipes manager for KDE - data files
krecipes-doc - recipes manager for KDE - documentation
Krecipes is a KDE application designed to manage recipes. It can help you to
do your shopping list, search through your recipes to find what you can do
with available ingredients and a diet helper. It can also import or export
recipes from files in various format (eg RecipeML or Meal-Master) or from
The package appears to be almost (see below) lintian clean.
The upload would fix these bugs: 473367, 478030, 513860
The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/k/krecipes
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/k/krecipes/krecipes_1.0~beta2-1.dsc
I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
I have to give you some background information. Maintainer for
krecipes is actually "Debian KDE Extras Team
<firstname.lastname@example.org>". Unfortunately, this is list
is mostly dead except from forwarded messages from BTS or PTS. A
number of mails I (and others) sent there got no response.
Krecipes has not been maintained for over 2 years and the MIA team has
requested the removal of the only Uploader a couple of months ago
(#513860). Therefore, I would consider krecipes effectively orphaned,
allthough not officially. Are there any formal steps I should
undertake to take over maintainership for this package?
Upstream has been dead for 2 years as well, but got recently revived
by a different maintainer who released a new version that fixes the
long-standing RC bug (#478030) that has kept krecipes out of Lenny.
I have packaged the new version and fixed a number of other issues.
The only complaint lintian still has is
W: krecipes-data: icon-size-and-directory-name-mismatch usr/share/apps/krecipes/icons/crystalsvg/48x48/actions/categories.png 32x32
I don't consider this severe enough to start and fiddle with changing
of binary files. Instead, I will try to get this fixed upstream. If
this does not happen for some reason I will wait for the 3.0 (quilt)
format to be accepted by ftp-master.
Also, dh_shlibdeps is complaining about a ton of unnecessary
dependencies. I have not yet tried to investigate where those are
