Bug#616626: ITP: pcb2gcode -- command-line tool for engraving PCBs using CNCs

Severity: wishlist
Owner: chrysn <chrysn@fsfe.org>

  Description     : command-line tool for engraving PCBs using CNCs

 pcp2gcode is a command-line tool for isolation routing and
 drilling PCBs that provides full support for both single- and
 double-sided boards. It generates G-code (RS-274 code) for
 engraving and drilling from Gerber and Excellon files.

i have packaged this program half a year ago (forgot to file an itp) and
have been building updated packages several times since then.

the packaging relies heavily on dh-autoreconf; apart from that, its
debian/rules includes the necessary provisions for building a -dbg
package and solving the rpath issue [1] brutally using chrpath.
concerning dependencies, the program links against boost, gtk (for image
operations and saving) and gerbv (the gerber viewer for file loading).
it is lintian clean up to --pedantic.

collaboration with upstream works well, there are numerous patches i've
either written myself or relayed from other users that are now

the package is about to be uploaded to mentors [2] (will be uploaded as
soon as i get a bug number for this). please review the package; i'm
about to submit it to debian-mentors@l.d.o with RFS.
