Dear mentors, I am looking for a sponsor for the new version 0.1.4c-3 of my package "hexer". This is an adoption - ITA #520635. The changelog entry describing my update to the Debian packaging of hexer is included a bit further down. There's just one binary package: hexer - An interactive binary editor with a Vi-like interface The package has been tested with lintian and pbuilder. The upload would fix these bugs: 437160, 520635 The package can be found on mentors.debian.net: - dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/h/hexer/hexer_0.1.4c-3.dsc Some may have noticed that it is my custom to 1. fix all compiler warnings in a package build, and 2. use the hardening wrapper. For this particular case, I've chosen not to do that straight away with the adoption; I'll probably adopt the upstream package itself in the next day or two and bring that 13-year-old code up to snuff. The problem is, the patch that fixes just -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes was more than 120 KBytes long :) IMHO, it'll better that I do this as a new upstream release :) Just for reference, here's my adoption changelog entry: hexer (0.1.4c-3) unstable; urgency=low * New maintainer. Closes: #520635 * Use quilt for patch management. * Drop the README patch; with all due respect to Peter Mathiasson, in my humble opinion this information is addressed to developers, not end-users, and thus belongs right here, in the Debian changelog instead. * Add a watch file. * Fix up the manual page a bit: - use .\" instead of ./" for comments - properly use hyphens instead of minus-signs * Flesh out the long description with a list of hexer features. * Unbreak the "comment" and "argument" words in the help text to avoid spellcheck warnings from lintian. * Override the "no upstream changelog" and "no homepage field" lintian warnings. * Add the Vcs-Svn and Vcs-Browser fields. * Bump the debhelper compatibility version to 7: - add misc:Depends to the binary package - minimize the rules file * Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.1: - replace Apps with Applications in the menu section - honor the "nostrip" build option; Closes: #437160 - override the compiler program and flags so the "noopt" build option is also honored - add the README.source file mentioning the use of quilt * Convert the copyright file to the machine-parseable format and add my copyright notice on the Debian packaging. * Build with -Werror if "werror" is specified in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS. * Fix some compiler warnings. * Quote the "needs" and "section" menu file fields and install it. -- Peter Pentchev <email@example.com> Fri, 03 Apr 2009 05:31:17 +0300 I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
