  Dear mentors (and others),

  I am looking for a sponsor for my package "gpart"

   * Made gparted build on i386. closes: #619834
   * Changed build script to handle no-stip build option. closes: #437067
   * Fixed FTBFS on !linux-any. closes: #636814
   * Related to building gparted on AMD64. closes: #397632
   * Made a more helpful message whenioctl(HDIO_GETGEO) fails. closes: #341935
   * Divided 01-conglomeration.patch, into smaller patches.

Please note, Before filing this request for NMU :
I had filed two bug reports which can be accessed at
(a) bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=619834 and
(b) bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=619831.

Both of them generated no response in a timely fashion. I mailed the
current maintainers (forensics-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org) seeking
permission for a NMU upload and got no response.
So i have CC'ed three lists seeking mentorship for a NMU upload.
debian-mentors Mailing list : Because i seek mentorship for a NMU upload
debian-forensics Mailing list : Because they are the maintainers of
this fine piece of software
debian-hurd Mailing list : Because it closes the FTBFS on debian/Hurd
and adds some Hurd specific code fixes (ontop of FTBFS).
