RFS: mp3gain -- Lossless mp3 normalizer with statistical analysis


I am still looking for a sponsor for mp3gain, a program to 
automatically adjust the volume of MP3s without reencoding. AFAIK 
there is no such program in Debian (please correct me if I am wrong) 
and it is great if you have a portable MP3 player that doesn't 
support normalizing by itself. It is a very simple one binary package 
and has been uploaded to mentors.debian.net [0].

  Package name    : mp3gain
  Version         : 1.4.3
  Upstream Author : "Glen Sawyer" <mp3gain@hotmail.com>

  Description     : Lossless mp3 normalizer with statistical analysis

MP3Gain analyzes and adjusts mp3 files so that they have the same 
volume. MP3Gain does not just do peak normalization, as many 
normalizers do. Instead, it does some statistical analysis to 
determine how loud the file actually sounds to the human ear. Also, 
the changes MP3Gain makes are completely lossless. There is no 
quality lost in the change because the program adjusts the mp3 file 
directly, without decoding and re-encoding. Also, this works with all 
mp3 players, i.e. no support for a special tag is required.

The ITP bugreport is in #241748.
