Dear mentors, I am looking for a sponsor for the new version 0.7.0+ds1-6 of my package "gforth". It contains two years' worth of packaging fixes along with an attempt at multiarch conversion and an acknowledged NMU. I am asking on the list since Patrick Matthäi, who kindly uploaded a couple of previous iterations of my adopted gforth packaging, seems to have been busy when I contacted him a couple of times during the past year and a half with RFS's. There are three binary packages: gforth - GNU Forth Language Environment gforth-common - GNU Forth architecture-independent dictionaries gforth-lib - GNU Forth Language Environment architecture-dependent files The gforth-lib package is new, introduced for the purpose of a proper multiarch conversion - it contains only the minimum of arch-specific compiled C code and Forth images that go into /usr/lib/gforth and cannot be shared by GForth instances installed side by side. I realize that this means that this upload shall have to go through NEW, but oh well, that's life :) The upload would fix two bugs, 587318 and 615142, both related to the Emacs Lisp files installed by GForth. It has been tested with Lintian and pbuilder. The package can be found on mentors.debian.net: dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/g/gforth/gforth_0.7.0+ds1-6.dsc I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me. If, in addition, the sponsor would be so kind as to set the DMUA flag, I'd be very grateful - although, of course, this might not be proper for a first-time sponsoring of this particular package. JFYI, here's the latest changelog entry: gforth (0.7.0+ds1-6) unstable; urgency=low * Fix the watch file syntax so the +ds1 part is properly stripped off. * Convert to the 3.0 (quilt) format. * Make gforth.el register the .fs, .4th, and .fth filename suffixes. Closes: #587318 * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.2: - gforth-common now Breaks older gforth versions, no longer Conflicts with them * Use dpkg-buildflags from dpkg-dev 1.15.7 to obtain the default values for CFLAGS, CPPFLAGS, and LDFLAGS. * Update the copyright file to the latest version of the DEP 5 format and bump the year on my copyright notice. * Shorten the Vcs-Browser URL. * Use the debhelper plugin provided by autotools-dev >= 20100122.1 to refresh the config.sub and config.guess files. * Also byte-compile the emacs mode for emacs-snapshot. Closes: #615142 * Acknowledge the NMU; thanks, Luk! * libffcall1 seems to build fine on armel now, so use it everywhere. * Bump the debhelper compatibility level to 8: - reorder the dh helper arguments to place the sequence name first * Switch to bzip2 compression for the Debian tarball. * Convert to multiarch: - move /usr/lib/*/gforth/ to a new gforth-lib package and mark it as Multi-Arch: same - mark gforth and gforth-common as Multi-Arch: foreign - add the 10-engine-subst patch to fix the libdir handling in engine/ * Override some more Lintian warnings: - more "unusual interpreter" for GForth and its kernel - no debhelper 9 dependency yet, the compatibility level is for multiarch only * Move the Debian packaging to Gitorious and update the Vcs-Git and Vcs-Browser URLs. -- Peter Pentchev <firstname.lastname@example.org> Tue, 12 Jul 2011 15:50:11 +0300 G'luck, Peter -- Peter Pentchev email@example.com roam@FreeBSD.org firstname.lastname@example.org PGP key: http://people.FreeBSD.org/~roam/roam.key.asc Key fingerprint FDBA FD79 C26F 3C51 C95E DF9E ED18 B68D 1619 4553 If you think this sentence is confusing, then change one pig.
