RFS: qemu-launcher - GTK+ front-end to QEMU computer emulator

Hash: SHA1

Dear mentors and Debian users,

I am looking for *testers* and a sponsor for my package "qemu-launcher".

 Package name     : qemu-launcher
 Version          : 1.6.99.svn60-1 (SVN snapshot of to be 1.7.0)
 Upstream Authors : Erik Meitner <emeitner@f2o.org>, myself
 URL              : https://gna.org/projects/qemulaunch
 License          : GPL
 Section          : otherosfs

Description: GTK+ front-end to QEMU computer emulator

 Qemu Launcher provides a graphical front-end to all basic, and many
 advanced QEMU computer emulator options. It allows you to create,
 save, and run multiple virtual machine configurations, create and
 convert disk images.
 Qemu Launcher utilizes the full system emulation mode of QEMU. See
 QEMU documentation for more information.
 Only x86 PC emulator is supported at the moment.
 This package contains a development snapshot of the upcoming 1.7.0

The application is still rough at edges, and may contain bugs. It is
written in Perl and GTK+. The interface is designed in Glade.

This version was intended as a bug fix for version 1.5.1 (+SVN), so it
could be included in Debian (in response to RFP bug #298229 by Robert
Millan), but major changes in QEMU (from 0.7 to 0.8) broke Qemu Launcher
in a way, that could not be fixed without extensive modifications. It is
also turned out that upstream author (Erik Meitner) was not working on
it anymore. So, in agreement with Erik, I took over upstream
development. Eventually the bug fixes were accompanied by new features
and this is how 1.7.0 came to be.

The application was packaged from day one by Erik, but this package is
redone from scratch to comply with the Policy, and made suitable for
inclusion in Debian. The package was created from SVN revision 60.

The application is available at:
