Re: Bug#493697: ITP: mobile-manager -- mobile manager GPRS/3G daemon

Hi, Guus.

Thanks for your valuable information.

As I said before, my first task is rewriting the package information.

Is this similar to "wader" (see ITP bug #492875)? If so, perhaps you
should make the upstreams work together.

As for the description in your ITP, it doesn't really tell me what it is
doing except that it has something to do with GPRS/3G. On the website,
there is a very clear description, you should use it as a basis for the
description of your package:

 Mobile Manager is a D-Bus service to control and use mobile data devices
 in Linux-based platforms. Mobile Manager provides a unified API to
 govern the following aspects of the GPRS/3G devices attached to the
 * Plug & Play device support.
 * PIN/PUK management.
 * Device information and status.
 * Connection establishment and traffic monitoring.

What is missing here is whether or not mobile-manager comes with a GUI component to
interact with the daemon.

Certainly, it is just the daemon.

The piece of software that acts as GUI is called escritorio-movistar (ITP #463967).


Met vriendelijke groet / with kind regards,
