Re: Bug#722429: ITP: osmctools -- Some tools to manipulate OpenStreetMap files

Hi Pierre,

thanks for your ITP.  The package seems to fit nicely into the Debian GIS
scope which just has assembled a lot of OSM packages as you can see here:

   http://blends.alioth.debian.org/gis/tasks/osm     [1]

So it would make perfectly sense if you also would join the Debian GIS
team on alioth


and put the packaging into the according VCS.  The advantage you have by
doing so is that your package will immediately advertised automatically
at the tasks page[1] above in the "started in VCS" section (since I just
added the osmctools entry into the according tasks file).  Another
advantage would be to have way better chances to find a sponsor for your

Regarding the ITP itself I think you should be more verbose in the long
description, what these tools are doing, what the converters are
converting, etc.

Kind regards
