Bug#520955: ITP: xserver-xorg-video-glamo -- X.Org X server -- SMedia Glamo display driver



Package: wnpp
Owner: Luca Capello <luca@pca.it>
Severity: wishlist
User: pkg-fso-maint@lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: package-creation

* Package name    : xserver-xorg-video-glamo
  Version         : YYYYMMDD.gitCOMMIT (read below)
  Upstream Author : mainly Lars-Peter Clausen <lars@metafoo.de>
* URL or Web page : http://git.openmoko.org/?p=xf86-video-glamo.git;a=summary
* License         : multiple, mostly XFree86 (full texts below)
  Description     : X.Org X server -- SMedia Glamo display driver
 This package provides the driver for the SMedia Glamo 3362 chipset,
 mostly found on the Openmoko Neo FreeRunner (GTA02).
 .
 More information about X.Org can be found at:
 <URL:http://www.X.org>

 .
 This package is built from the X.Org xf86-video-glamo driver module.

NB, I cc:ed a lot of lists: please refrain to discuss non-Debian issues
on all of them.  Except for general issues, pkg-fso-maint@ is the most
relevant one, which should always be cc:ed, TIA.

This driver is based on the XFree86 fbdev driver, then adapted to the
SMedia Glamo chipset, more information are available at

  http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Smedia_Glamo_3362

In my plan, this supersedes the Xglamo kdrive X11 server, which AFAIK is
not update anymore, ATM available in the pkg-fso repository at

  http://pkg-fso.alioth.debian.org

The xserver-xorg-video-glamo package as well will be maintained under
the pkg-fso umbrella, but I would like to work as close as possible with
the X Strike Force, to be sure the package conforms their standards.  If
the X Strike Force would like to take care of the package, I would more
than glad to "offer" it to them...


In src/glamo-driver.c, GLAMO_VERSION is set to 1000: however, this
driver has not seen any public release yet, thus my intent to use the
date of the last Git commit plus the first 8 letters of the Git commit
itself as upstream version.

- exceptions
  =====
  * src/glamo-driver.c
      no license bits, authors Alan Hourihane and Michale Dänzer

  * src/glamo-regs.h
      GPL-2+, author Harald Welte


I think that not only the two exceptions, but everything about the
license needs further investigation, with for sure advices from
upstream.

I will start to do real works in a few days if there will not be major
complains.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
