I am looking for a sponsor for my package "zinnia".
* Package name : zinnia
Version : 0.02
Upstream Author : Taku Kudo <email@example.com>
* URL : http://zinnia.sourceforge.net/
* License : BSD
Programming Lang: C++ (with Python, Perl, Ruby binding, with swig)
Description : Online hand recognition system with machine learning
Zinnia is a simple, customizable and portable online hand recognition
system based on Support Vector Machines. Zinnia simply receives user pen
strokes as a sequence of coordinate data and outputs n-best characters
sorted by SVM confidence. To keep portability, Zinnia doesn't have any
rendering functionality. In addition to recognition, Zinnia provides
training module that allows us to create any hand-written recognition
systems with low-cost.
1. zinnia declare it licensed under New BSD License, but the COPYING
file is a GPL template (this is a known bug:
2. zinnia is required by scim-tegaki (ITP:
http://bugs.debian.org/514961), which is handwriting input method for
scim (can be used to input Chinese and Japanese).
It builds these binary packages:
libzinnia-dev - development files for the zinnia library
libzinnia-doc - documention files for the zinnia library
libzinnia0 - online hand recognition library with machine learning
libzinnia0-dbg - debugging symbols for the zinnia library
python-zinnia - Python binding for the zinnia library
zinnia - utils for the zinnia library
The package appears to be lintian clean.
The upload would fix these bugs: 514969
The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/z/zinnia
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/z/zinnia/zinnia_0.02-1.dsc
I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
