A birthday message and a RFS for Film Gimp 0.13-1

Hi everyone,

   First a song:

   Happy birthday to me.
   Happy birthday to me
   Happy birthday DAMnation.
   Happy birthday to me.

   One year on [1], I'm still in the dark about my application and am
still a weekly contestant on the Sponsor Whoring Gameshow. I have
three options:

1) Resign in frustration and orphan all 10 of my source packages [2]
2) Wait on Troup some more until I lose my sanity.
3) Make another rant on -devel.

   Unfortunately, this anniversary is one day too early for me to get
so drunk not to give a damn about Debian GNU/Linux so option 3 it is
with 1 or 2 to follow soon.

  Congratulations James, you've turned me into one of the most bitter
and cynical NMs ever (with the possible exception of DanielS or
Eray). I've been involved with the Debian community for the last four
years now and it was just over a year ago I decided that I wanted to
contribute something back to the project that has given me so
much. It's so nice to feel betrayed by the distribution that I swear
by at the final stage.
  If there's genuine grounds to have my application rejected, then go
ahead and present them. There's no way I can improve myself to be
worthy enough of becoming a Debian developer if I have absolutely no
feedback whatsoever.

  Could someone please tell me something, anything?  Where's the
leadership that'll have the guts to stand up and say that what I'm
going through is wrong?

Now on with the show:

Package: filmgimp
Version: 0.13-1

Description: A motion picture editing and retouching tool
 Film Gimp is the most successful open source tool in feature motion
 picture work to date and has been used in the production of movies
 such as Harry Potter, Scooby Doo and Stuart Little.
 An extension of the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), Film Gimp
 is designed to operate upon a series of images (with a store frame
 manager) and in 16-bit linear or floating point colour depths. With
 sixteen bits per component instead of eight, Film Gimp has much more
 colour depth capacity than Gimp.
 Note: Although this is more colours than can be displayed at once on
 a conventional 24-bit monitor (8-bit per component), 16-bit makes a
 difference when working with the higher dynamic range of film.

Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 4.1), libgtk1.2-dev, libjpeg62-dev,
libpng2-dev, libtiff3g-dev, zlib1g-dev
