Hello Maintainers,

I'm searching for a new maintainer for the orphaned package clanlib.

Here are some informations about the package:

WNPP: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=414533
p.d.o: http://packages.debian.org/clanlib
PTS: http://packages.qa.debian.org/c/clanlib.html
Upstream Version: 0.8
Maintainer Version: 0.6.5-1-4

I need this package maintained and in version 0.8, because I want to
maintain trophy and on the other hand, it's for some other applications
outdated, too.

I think I haven't got enough experience yet to maintain such a library
package, maybe later, but not at the moment.

So hopefully someone will adopt it. :)

FWIW Sam already packaged the new upstream version [1] inside the games team (CC'ed), but didn't upload it yet since it would break rdepends. Any news here?

[1]: <http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/pkg-games-devel/2007-April/003286.html>
And why he hasn't set the ownership of the wnpp bug to himself and renamed it as an ITP one?

Mit freundlichem Gruß / With kind regards,

Right now both clanbomber and epiphany use clanlib. I have tried to build both of them with 0.8 without much success. I know there is a clanbomber2 available that doesn't use clanlib but not sure about epiphany. You are certainly welcome to help get clanbomber and/or epiphany working with 0.8. :-) I'll even post the new clanlib somewhere for you if you wish.
