Control: retitle -1 ITA: galternatives -- graphical setup tool for the alternatives system Control: owner 856289 ! I intend to adopt the galternatives package and set it as co-maintained inside Debian Chinese Team  since several Chinese contributors expressed willingness to help with the development of this package inside IRC channel. I am aware of the existence of "galternatives" project on Alioth . However this project is apparently inactive and the project manager (in CC list) is no longer the (current) maintainer of galternatives package. As a result, I am setting up another git project in collab-maint  to coordinate future development. To ease the participation of contributors who have no permission on Alioth, another repo mirror on GitHub  is set up as well to receive commits from external users. Development plans for future galternatives includes (but not limited to): * Migration from python2 to python3 * Splitting of python code in order to form a separate python library * Packaging modernization * Misc code review * (Perhaps) call update-alternatives as a backend instead of parsing alternatives files by hand The package description is: A GUI to help the system administrator to choose what program should provide a given service. . This is a graphical front-end to the update-alternatives program shipped with dpkg.  https://chinese.alioth.debian.org  https://alioth.debian.org/projects/galternatives/  https://anonscm.debian.org/git/collab-maint/galternatives.git  https://github.com/debiancn/galternatives -- Regards, Boyuan Yang
