RFS: qhimdtransfer - Transfer software for MiniDisc
I am looking for a sponsor for my package "qhimdtransfer".
It is a software to transfer audio tracks to and from Sony HiMD
and compatible walkman. To my current knowledge, it is the first
software free software and first third-party software to be
able to provide access to HiMD walkman. Getting this into Debian
will allow alot of people to use their MiniDisc devices with Linux
the first time with a native software. The functionality of the
software is not yet completed, for example, transfers to the
device are not yet possible and transfers from certain models
only work with an additional secret key. The release of the
keys are subject of current negotioations with Sony
Corporation. If things work out well, we will be able
to publish the keys as well to support all models.
Please take also a look at our wiki:

It builds these binary packages:
qhimdtransfer - Qt-based transfer software for HiMD Walkman.
The package appears to be lintian clean.
My motivation for maintaining this package is: I am one of the upstream developers.
The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/q/qhimdtransfer
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/q/qhimdtransfer/qhimdtransfer_0.0.1-1.dsc
I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
