Greetings James,

Thank you for the recommendations.

pyisomd5sum is a .so extension, not a .py module, so byte compilation
is not necessary/possible.


As I was looking into correcting the debian/copyright file, I noticed
that the Anaconda package's files had over 100 different Copyright
claims by many dozens of different authors (mostly for the
translations for the Installer portion of Anaconda itself.  All were
under GPL or LGPL, but it would have been quite a task to itemize them
all, especially since 95% of the files would not be used in the final
binary packages.  That tipped the scales of convenience, and I decided
to separate the isomd5sum directory of the Anaconda sources into its
own tarball.  As a result, there is now only one copyright holder (Red
Hat, Inc), and one license (GPLv2).  More on that is at
http://www.finnie.org/software/isomd5sum/ (this also serves as a "home
page" for the broken-out tarball).

Because of this, the source package name has changed from anaconda to
isomd5sum.  Additionally, I have bumped the version from to (the latest Anaconda release; in reality, nothing in the
isomd5sum directory changed between those versions).  Oh, and an added
benefit is the source tarball size dropped from 5.5MB to 19KB as a
result.  So...


I am looking for a sponsor for my package "isomd5sum".

* Package name    : isomd5sum
 Version         :
 Upstream Author : Red Hat, Inc.
* URL             : http://www.finnie.org/software/isomd5sum/
* License         : GPLv2
 Section         : misc

It builds these binary packages:
isomd5sum  - ISO9660 checksum utilities
python-pyisomd5sum - ISO9660 checksum Python module

The package is lintian clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 376187

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/i/isomd5sum
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/i/isomd5sum/isomd5sum_11.1.0.95-1.dsc

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

Kind regards
Ryan Finnie
