RFS: artha

Hi Andreas,

As you have told, I have uploaded my package "artha" (for both i386 and amd64). Below are the details.

* Package name : artha
Version : 0.8.0-1
Upstream Author : Sundaram Ramaswamy <legends2k@yahoo.com>
* URL : http://artha.sourceforge.net/
* License : GPL v2
Section : utils

It builds these binary packages:
artha - A handy off-line thesaurus based on WordNet

The upload would fix these bugs: 514690 (ITP)

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/a/artha
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/a/artha/artha_0.8.0-1.dsc

I would be glad if you uploaded this package for me.
I do agree with your recommendation on commiting the control files
to Debian Science SVN as it relates to WordNet.

Kind regards
Sundaram Ramaswamy

Well, there is no *requirement* to use the SVN repository but it turned out
to be quite reasonable.  So I would recommend to do so - but finally it is
your choice.  You have to ask on alioth.debian.org for a guest account and
once you got this you can ask for adding you to the debian-science group
which automatically grants you write permission to the Debian Science SVN.

If this is a to complicated procedure for you for the moment just point
me to the *.dsc file on mentors once you uploaded it and I might inject it
into Debian Science SVN (if you agree in principle).

Kind regards
