RFS: byzanz - Small screencast creator

Hi Mentors,

I'm looking for a sponsor for this tiny screen cast utility named byzanz:

* Package name    : byzanz
  Version         : 0.1.0
  Upstream Author : Benjamin Otte <otte@gnome.org>
* URL             : http://people.freedesktop.org/~company/byzanz
* License         : GPL
  Description     : Small screencast creator
* Closes          : #358558

Byzanz is a command-line/GNOME Panel applet allowing you to record your
 current desktop or parts of it to an animated  GIF file. This is
specially useful for publishing on the  web, since every  browser
understands the GIF format.

Byzanz is not limited to gnome, you can use it under non-GTK
environments  like KDE too.

Package status:
- lintian-clean, but linda gives a warning:
  W: byzanz; A binary links against a library it does not use symbols

- builds fine in a clean pbuilder environment

- can't be tested with piuparts since, at least one dependency (eg
  xlibs-data) does not uninstall cleanly

- comes with manpage and watchfile

Since there is no single screencast tool available in Debian, it would
be nice to have this tool ;)

You can grab the package from here:


Kind regards,
