19980414 Work-Needing and Prospective Packages

          Work-Needing and Prospective Packages for Debian GNU/Linux
   $Id: prospective-packages.html,v 1.10 1998/04/14 23:37:33 johnie Exp $
   This document is intended to identify areas that need your
   contributions. It provides information that hopefully changes quite
   often, so it supplements the regular Debian Developer documentation:
   [1]http://www.debian.org/developers_corner.html. This document
   provides the current list of packages which are either:
     * orphaned,
     * withdrawn from the unstable distribution,
     * maintained but its developer would like to find a new person,
     * currently being worked on to include in the distribution, and
     * good ideas -- they would be nice to have, but no one is yet
       working on them.
   New versions of this document will be available via FTP and HTTP:
     * [2]http://www.debian.org/doc/prospective-packages.html
     * [3]ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/doc/package-developer/prospective-p
     * [4]ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/doc/package-developer/prospective-p
   Please send additions, corrections, suggestions and wishes to the WNPP
   maintainer (wnpp@debian.org). Please mention which version of this
   document your comments refer.
   Try to change the subject of your mail to reflect the packages you're
   talking about, it makes it easier for to sort out all "Re:
   Work-Needing and Prospective Packages" emails. A suggested subject
   line reads "WNPP: removing foopackage" or "WNPP: working on
   barpackage". Thanks.

   Please inform the WNPP maintainer (wnpp@debian.org) via e-mail when

   adopt a package, please inform both WNPP and the current maintainer of
   the package.
   The following packages are offered up for adoption:

       with this package is that LessTif is still not complete, and may
       well again have bugs that are difficult to track (recently: memory
       leaks and X hangs). The ideal maintainer would be somebody who is

                 Programs that aren't available yet in Debian
   Programs listed in this section aren't yet available as Debian
   packages, but there has been an expressed desire to include them. If
   you want to create one of these packages, or any Debian package,
   please send an e-mail with an "Intent to create ..." subject line to
   the Debian development list (debian-devel@lists.debian.org).
   If you are not already a developer, instructions on joining the Debian
   Project are in the "Developers Corner" of the Debian website.
   Programming and development
     * The [18]Java Development Environment wrapper for xemacs.
     * The [19]Linux BLAS, FFTs, general utilities and libraries, and
       library support for Extended Precision Arithmetic
     * ccmalloc -- memory profiler and malloc debugger
     * ECoLisp -- a Common Lisp compiler that produces faster code but
       isn't as widely used as GCL
     * CLiCC -- Common Lisp compiler that generates stand-alone apps
       (rather large ones, though)
     * CLX -- Common Lisp Xlib implementation
     * PCL -- Portable Common Loops for GCL
     * Cross-compilation environments for alpha, m68k, SPARC
     * [20]ACE -- (a free C++ library)

       xemacs20, latex2html, and sdc).
     * A CAD package from the [24]Scientific Applications on Linux page.
     * The LGPL-ed GUI library [25]fltk which is supposed to be

       checks the complete text first, searching for alternatives (on the
       fly) and asking for user action at the very end of the checking
       process. This saves much time on low memory machines.
