Looking for a sponsor

Hash: SHA1

I have a Debian package that I'm looking for a sponsor for.

Package: vbcc
 Version: 0.7-2
 Section: devel
 Priority: optional
 Architecture: i386
 Depends: libc6 (>= 2.2.4-2)
 Installed-Size: 1562
 Maintainer: David Given <dg@cowlark.com>
 Description: Lightweight retargetable optimising C compiler
  vbcc is a free portable and retargetable ANSI C compiler which can generate
  code for a wide variety of processors. It can perform any of a large range
  of optimisations on the emitted code; in some areas it can produce better
  code than gcc.
  This version contains code generators for: alpha, c16x, i386, m68k, PowerPC,
  and Infocom's Z-machine.

vbcc is *non-free*. (The upstream author wants to keep a license that 
disallows the distribution of modified versions; I got special permission to 
distribute a tar.gz version of the source to go with the Debian patch.) It's 
almost, but not quite, lintian clean; it produces one error ---

E: vbcc: FSSTND-dir-in-usr usr/man/

- --- what's this?

You can find it here:


There's an apt repository based on http://plover.net/~hjalfi/debian, if you 
prefer. (There are some other packages in there that I'm packaging, but they 
need work before announcing to non beta people. If you're interested in glk 
or IF, you may want a look.)

Any comments, suggestions, or flames because I haven't packaged it properly
