Looking for a sponsor
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I have a Debian package that I'm looking for a sponsor for.
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.2.4-2)
Maintainer: David Given <firstname.lastname@example.org>
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
