Re: Bug#777000: ITP: limereg -- Lightweight Image Registration. Commandline application for image registration (automatically aligning two images with similar content).

Added cc to debian-med.

I personally disagree with your statement on medical image registration. I believe both fast and sophisticated registration tools can live together. Your package would fit perfectly in d-science or d-med, if not both.

Regarding your naming scheme, I have nothing against it. However, if your project becomes a large library associated with an executable, you might want to consider using limereg (source package name), liblimereg (shared object), liblimereg-dev (symlinks + headers), liblimereg-dbg (debug symbols) and liblimereg-tools or liblimereg-bin (executables). Your call.

I would also suggest to finalize the separation between executable and library first before doing the packaging.

Before actually finding a sponsor, you'd need to prepare the packaging somewhere, in your personal or chosen debian team git repository for instance, and make sure it is of sufficient quality for an upload (using tools like Lintian). Then, you will file an RFS bug, which will point prospective sponsors to the location of your packaging and give them instructions on how to build and test the resulting binary packages.

Hope that helps.

Great, I really appreciate this. Thank you.

I plan to contribute three packages. I hope, the naming scheme is correct:
limereg: Commandline application for image registration (available)
liblimereg: Shared object library for image registration (in development)
liblimereg-dev: Headers etc. for development (in development)

Then I plan to integrate liblimereg to more common software like Imagemagick, maye OpenCV (if I'll be allowed to - by the package owners and by my family - well, in fact my wife, who doesn't like me sitting at the laptop all the time  ;).

I'm not sure which maintainer team would be better suited. It is meant for practical (!) application in all areas, from science over industrial automation up to end users. For medical image registration, however, it might be less suitable in many cases, because it is based on a very fast approach (ssd distance measure and linear interpolation), and in a medical setup usually more sophisticated (and probably more time consuming) approaches with a higher accuracy are used. I'm not sure if I will add these other algorithms (like ngf, spline ...) later. Well, maybe I will sometimes, because I'm working for a big medical device vendor in my daylight-life and just love this working field :)

Anyway, I need a sponsor, if this shall become part of Debian.
