  Description     : header files for libdmtx

The libdmtx package contains the shared libraries and command-line
utilities for creating/reading Data Matrix 2D barcode symbols. Install
this package if you need the C header files to include in your source

NOTE: The packages are already available from the following repository:

    deb http://www2.codegnome.org:59321/codegnome-debs/ sid contrib non-free
    deb-src http://www2.codegnome.org:59321/codegnome-debs/ sid contrib non-free

and are just in need of a sponsor.

Surely you don't want to create three different source packages libdmtx,libdmtx-dev and libdmtx-utils.

What you want instead is one source package creating 3 binary packages.
As such its only necessary to file one ITP for the source package.
While at it, please name the libdmtx binary package libdmtx0, to match the SONAME.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
