Dear mentors, I am looking for a sponsor for the new version 1.1.dfsg.2-1 of my package "s5". It is a second DFSG repackaging of the upstream 1.1 source which replaces the iepngfix.htc file (currently under a "free if this notice is kept intact" license) with a later version from its author distributed under LGPL-2.1+ as suggested by Simon McVittie in #563709. While I'm here, I refreshed the Debian packaging a lot; see the changelog entry below for details. There is a single binary package: s5 - A simple HTML-based presentation system The package is almost lintian-clean; there are two warnings. The first one is a pedantic warning about a missing upstream changelog, which unfortunately I cannot do much about - I've contemplated extracting a part of the HTML documentation, but it is not really enough for a proper changelog. Lintian also complains about a dfsg version containing a dot. This is also true, and it was a mistake I made back when I first repackaged it; however, I don't think there's much to be done about it right now, not until Eric Meyer decides to release s5-1.2. Of course, reversioning with an epoch (s5-1:1.1+dfsg.2-1) is always an option, but IMHO not really needed in this case. The upload would fix these bugs: 563709 The package can be found on mentors.debian.net: dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/s/s5/s5_1.1.dfsg.2-1.dsc I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me. JFYI, here's the changelog entry: s5 (1.1.dfsg.2-1) unstable; urgency=low * Repackage to replace the iepngfix.htc file with a later version obtained from the author's website that is licensed under LGPL-2.1 instead of the "free if this notice is left intact" former license. Also replace the file within the s5-blank.zip archive. Closes: #563709 * Update the iepngfix.htc information in the copyright file. * Add misc:Depends to the binary package. * Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.3 with no changes. * Refer to the GPL-2 common license file instead of the symlink. * Minimize the rules file using debhelper override targets. * Move the get-orig-source actions into a separate shell script and teach them to replace the iepngfix.htc file everywhere it needs to be. * Convert the copyright file from a relatively recent version of the CopyrightFormat Wiki page to the DEP 5 format with minimal changes. * Fix the Vcs-Browser URL to point at the same repository path as the Vcs-Svn one. * Reorder the copyright file sections so that specific exceptions (s5.sh, iepngfix.htc) are always placed after the general sections. * Bump the copyright years on the Debian packaging. * Correct the s5 tool's manual page - remove the obsolete "bug" about no config files; this has not been true for almost two years now! * Convert to the 3.0 (quilt) source format with no changes. -- Peter Pentchev <email@example.com> Thu, 07 Jan 2010 15:39:28 +0200 G'luck, Peter -- Peter Pentchev firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com roam@FreeBSD.org PGP key: http://people.FreeBSD.org/~roam/roam.key.asc Key fingerprint 2EE7 A7A5 17FC 124C F115 C354 651E EFB0 2527 DF13 This sentence is false.
