Re: RFS: gtkglarea (updated package)

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for the new version 1.2.3-4 of my package "gtkglarea", which was orphaned earlier this year. I intend to maintain the package in the future, as it is a dependency of some software I am interested in.

It builds these binary packages:
gtkglarea5 - shared library for the GTK+ OpenGL area widget
gtkglarea5-dev - OpenGL area widget for GTK+

The package appears to be lintian clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 124159, 171922, 209649, 267287, 471986

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
 - URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/g/gtkglarea
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main co\
ntrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/g/gtkglarea/gtkglarea_1.2.3-\

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

Kind regards
Morten Kjeldgaard


Couple of minor warnings that I'm not too concerned about:

I: gtkglarea source: debian-watch-file-is-missing
W: gtkglarea source: quilt-patch-missing-description 01-gtkgl.m4.patch
W: gtkglarea5: package-name-doesnt-match-sonames libgtkgl5

Obviously the watch file is pretty much impossible since I couldn't find an upstream. The patch missing description is an ieasy fix if you have to do another upload.

What I'm most concerned with is the soname. I know there are several rdepends on this package so I could see not fixing that for now but I wanted to check with you first.
