RFS: obdgpslogger [ITP #580176]
I am looking for a sponsor for my package "obdgpslogger". I have uploaded
this a couple times previously, but not yet received any response. This
RFS corresponds to a new package that meets newer packaging & lintian
The advice given to me in #debian-mentors was to ping this mailing list
again; it has been a couple months since my last request.
* Package name : obdgpslogger
Version : 0.15-1
Upstream Author : Gary Briggs <firstname.lastname@example.org> [myself]
* URL : http://icculus.org/obdgpslogger/
* License : GPLv2+
Section : science
It builds these binary packages:
obdgpslogger - Suite of tools to log OBDII and GPS data
The package appears to be lintian clean.
My motivation for maintaining this package is: This has been my pet
project for a while, now. I'm the upstream maintainer, and I'd like to
get my package into the debian repositories. There are no packages in
debian for users to enjoy OBDII right now, and I feel that my software
is among the better tools for the job.
In #debian-mentors, it was noted that since this package is usually used
with a hardware dongle, it may be harder to find a mentor. This package
contains a full software emulator of the dongle, called obdsim. A simple
way to execute it is "obdsim -o" which launches the sim, and then
attaches logger to it with debug spam turned on.
The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/o/obdgpslogger
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/o/obdgpslogger/obdgpslogger_0.15-1.dsc
I would be glad if someone could become my mentor for this and hopefully
Thank-you very much for your time,
