RFP: rhythmbox-applet -- control applet for rhythmbox music player


I am looking for a sponsor for rhythmbox-applet. This package was
orphaned last week [1] after being unmaintained for a long time. I
packaged the latest version which fixes several bugs including one FTBFS
bug. Upstream is very cooperative.

I already have two packages in Debian: dnstop and sipcalc, and two more
in the RFP queue [2,3].

The source package for rhythmbox-applet is available at [4]

* Package name    : rhythmbox-applet
  Version         : 0.1.11
  Upstream Author : Paul Kuliniewicz <kuliniew@purdue.edu>
* URL             : http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~kuliniew/rhythmbox-applet/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : control applet for rhythmbox music player

 This is a small GNOME panel applet to control Rhythmbox music playback.
 Advantages that this applet has over using the icon Rhythmbox puts in
 the notification area include:
  * One-click access to the main operations needed during playback,
    without needing to use a context menu.
  * Display of the current playing time without requiring a mouse-over.
  * Display of the current song's album in the song information.
  * More in the spirit of the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines. The
    notification area is intended primarily for notifying the user
    of events, not as a secondary means of control.

rhythmbox-applet (0.1.11-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release (Closes: #328192, #345643, #349751)
  * New maintainer (Closes: #353399)
