RFS: libopenobex (also includes openobex-apps and ircp)



Hi,

This is about changing maintainership of a new version of libopenobex which is 
already in Debian.
libopenobex is a GPL'ed library for the OBEX protocol which supports 
Bluetooth, IrDA, TCP and in this new version also USB.
The new control is listed at the bottom of this mail.

I am currently the obexftp maintainer (sponsored by Michael Banck) and would 
like to maintain libopenobex, too. However, not being a DD, I need 
sponsorship and Edd Dumbill is pretty busy currently. The history is shown at 
in the BTS as bug #237386

The new package can be found at:
http://www.stud.uni-karlsruhe.de/~ubq7/debian/

The source package got renamed (libopenobex1.0 -> libopenobex) as it was once 
(in oldstable) and the binary packages got renamed, too (libopenobex-1.0-0 ->
libopenobex1). The naming is thus consistent with the libpkg-guide.

The following packages currently use libopenobex:
affix
kdebluetooth
libaffix2
libmultisync-plugin-irmc
libmultisync-plugin-irmc-bluetooth
obexserver
ussp-push

Once uploaded, I would notify the respective maintainers.

The following packages are directly affected by this source:
libopenobex-1.0-0: renamed to libopenobex1 in the new package
libopenobex-1.0-0-dev: now libopenobex1-dev (both provide libopenobex-dev)
openobex-apps: not shipped seperately anymore, same source as libopenobex
ircp: not shipped seperately anymore, same source as libopenobex
and
obexftp: above repository has obexftp-0.19 that uses the new lib

I also notified the maintainer of ircp but did not get any answer so far. 
However, I included any patches of the previously seperated packages. The 
patches are handled by quilt (no build-time patching).

I hope that someone can sponsor this new version; getting obexftp-0.19 also 
uploaded would be a bonus :)
I also plan on packaging other OBEX related packages, e.g. wnpp bug #238314.
