RFS: zinnia (Online hand recognition system with machine learning)

Dear mentors,

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

* Package name    : zinnia
 Version         : 0.02
 Upstream Author : Taku Kudo <taku@chasen.org>
* URL             : http://zinnia.sourceforge.net/
* License         : BSD
 Programming Lang: C++ (with Python, Perl, Ruby binding, with swig)
 Description     : Online hand recognition system with machine learning

Zinnia is a simple, customizable and portable online hand recognition
system based on Support Vector Machines. Zinnia simply receives user pen
strokes as a sequence of coordinate data and outputs n-best characters
sorted by SVM confidence. To keep portability, Zinnia doesn't have any
rendering functionality. In addition to recognition, Zinnia provides
training module that allows us to create any hand-written recognition
systems with low-cost.


1. zinnia declare it licensed under New BSD License, but the COPYING
file is a GPL template (this is a known bug:

2. zinnia is required by scim-tegaki (ITP:
http://bugs.debian.org/514961), which is handwriting input method for
scim (can be used to input Chinese and Japanese).

It builds these binary packages:
libzinnia-dev - development files for the zinnia library
libzinnia-doc - documention files for the zinnia library
libzinnia0 - online hand recognition library with machine learning
libzinnia0-dbg - debugging symbols for the zinnia library
python-zinnia - Python binding for the zinnia library
zinnia     - utils for the zinnia library

The package appears to be lintian clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 514969

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/z/zinnia
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/z/zinnia/zinnia_0.02-1.dsc

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

Kind regards
 LI Daobing
