I am looking for a sponsor for the new version 0.0.6-2

Please consider teaming up with someone as alternative to seeking sponsors.

I would be happy to team up with you, if you are ok with using (or willing to learn about) Git and CDBS as our key packaging routines.

As alternative to forming a new team (with me or someone else) you could also try ask some existing team (e.g. the Gnome or KDE teams or some other relatively generic one) if they would want to work with you.

Working as a team is a bit more work initially (both socially and technically) than working alone and seeking sponsors, but I believe it pays off on easier maintainance long-term and more fun doing it :-)

I do not want to sponsor your packages (or *any* packages for that matter), as I dislike the concept of sponsoring: I fear that it too often leads to bad quality packages in the long run when the developers that upload into Debian are not themselves directly engaged in the packaging work.

Kind regards, and good luck finding sponsors if stay on that path,
