Dear mentors, sponsors and fellow Debianistas, here is my second attempt to find a sponsor (or more reviewers) for my package "assimp". since the main package description has not really changed much since yesterday, i will give you just a quick overview about what has changed. (full description can still be found at the end of this email) unittests: unfortunately the provided unittests only seem to work on w32 (at least that is what the README claims and i couldn't make it work) dfsg repackaging: according to suggestions from michael i removed more cruft from the orig.tar.gz package, namely the libraries that are shipped with the upstream tarball but for which we want to use system replacements (e.g. zlib, boost, cppunit) since the unittests indeed do not work, i decided to drop the entire test/ directory, which shrinks the source tarball (gzipped) from about 19MB to 2.5MB! i also dropped some more w32 binaries, most important the "glut" library. ~dfsg vs +dfsg: since i have no string opinion about which one to use and i did a dfsg repackage again, i went for +dfsg this time (esp. since ~dfsg < +dfsg which kind of fit) FTBFS: michael reported an ftbfs, due to debian/copyright_hints including binary data; since most of the problematic files were in test/models/ a lot of binary blobs have vanished. the few remaining problematic files have been excluded manually, so debian/copyright_hints is now a text-file again, and the FTBFS seems to be gone. DEP5/lintian: the files, that had copyright notices triggering the warning, are no longer included, so this should be fixed licensing: other license issues have been cleared with upstream that assure me, that everything wis BSD-3 ("Comment" added in debian/copyright) libassimp2.symbols: has now demangled symbols for the C++, and normal symbols for C python: strict dependency between python-pyassimp and libassimp2 fixed dylib loading mechanism as proposed by jakub removed extranous printout to stdout thanks for all the reviews fgmasdr IOhannes and here is the announcement/RFS * Package name : assimp Version : 2.0.863~dfsg-1 Upstream Author : ASSIMP Development team * URL : http://assimp.sf.net * License : BSD (3-clause) Section : graphics Assimp is a library to import various well-known 3D model formats ("assets") in a uniform manner. Assimp aims at providing a full asset conversion pipeline for use in game engines / realtime rendering systems of any kind but is not limited to this audience. The library is designed for maximum stability and flexibility. While written in C++, a pure C API exists, as well as bindings to various other languages, including Python, D and Blitzmax. Assimp loads models into a straightforward data structure for easy processing by your application. Various post processing steps (such as general optimization or computation of extra data like normal or tangent vectors) can be executed on the imported data to suit your needs.
