Re: Bug#460493: ITP: libfprint -- fingerprint library of fprint project



Hello,

I'm directly writing to the Debian FTP Team to solve the issue with
fprint.  Since the discussion started on debian-devel, I set the R-T and
M-F-T headers to point to debian-devel and bug #438922 [1].  This
because the latter is the first ITP for fprint and it's owned by the
FingerForce team (the primary place for discussion about fingerprint
software on Debian).

I've never checked that yet, but read below.

The situation is even worse:

1) another ITP (#438922 [1]) already existed for fprint and it was
   worked on [2].  Debian distribution at which fprint is targeted
   hasn't been decided yet: I'm in favor of experimental, while other
   group members are OK with unstable

2) Kenshi Muto packaged fprint to use the AES2501 fingerprint reader in
   his new Fujitsu LOOX U50 ultra mobile PC [3]

3) Emfox Zhou's packages were updated to NEW [4] no more than 6 hours
   after his ITP (#460493 [5]), effectively giving no time to reply to
   the ITP with the concerns above

Now, since Emfox asked how to solve this situation [6], I think the best
thing would be the FTP team to reject Emfox's packages (at the moment of
writing this mail still in NEW).  Then Emfox can join the Debian
FingerForce Team and work from there on the fprint packages :-)

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
