Reopening Bug#267042, libptp2 and a lintian warning.



Hallo,

I reopened Bug#267042 and I worked a bit on packaging libptp2 [1].
This is one of my first packages, so I would like to have your opinion,
is it in a decent shape enough to ask to sponsor it?

The original ITP author does not respond anymore so I make the annunce
here that I indend to maintain the libptp2 package.

There is an issue with the package name, lintian says:

W: libptp2: package-name-doesnt-match-sonames libptp2-1

but libptp2 is not intended to be the second version of libptp, it is a
different thing and so I (and the upstream author) think that the
package should be named libptp2 and not libptp2-SONAMEVERSION as the
library policy would suggest. May I override the lintian warning about
this issue?

Here the source package details.

Package: libptp2
Description: a library to communicate with PTP devices (digicams or MP3
players) libptp2 is a library used to communicate with PTP devices like
still imaging cameras or MP3 players (KODAK mc3).
 .
 You can download files or tweak camera properties using ptpcam program
 boundled with libptp2.
