RFS: packagekit (ping)

Dear mentors,

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

* Package name    : packagekit
  Version         : 0.6.7-1
  Upstream Author : Richard Hughes <richard@hughsie.com>
* URL             : http://packagekit.org
* License         : GPLv2/LGPLv2
  Section         : admin

It builds these binary packages:
gstreamer0.10-packagekit - GStreamer plugin to install codecs using
libpackagekit-glib2-14 - Library for accessing PackageKit using GLib
libpackagekit-glib2-dev - Library for accessing PackageKit using GLib
(development files)
libpackagekit-qt-dev - Library for accessing PackageKit using Qt4
(development files)
libpackagekit-qt14 - Library for accessing PackageKit using Qt4
browser-plugin-packagekit - Plugin to install missing plugins using
packagekit - Provides a package management service
packagekit-backend-apt - Python APT backend for PackageKit
packagekit-backend-aptcc - C++ APT backend for PackageKit
packagekit-backend-smart - Smart backend for PackageKit
packagekit-bash-completion - Offer to install missing programs
packagekit-docs - Documentation for PackageKit
packagekit-gtk-module - Install fonts automatically using PackageKit
python-packagekit - PackageKit Python bindings

The package appears to be lintian clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 468132

My motivation for maintaining this package is: I follow the project since
version 0.1.5 and develop some own software on to of the
PackageKit library. I use PackageKit daily and I'm in contact with

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/p/packagekit
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- dget

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

Note on PackageKit:
PackageKit has Debconf support now (the APTcc backend has it) and supports
some other functions requested for Debian, like solving the problem if a
package installation requires a package removal etc. Nearly all problems
some Debian devs named are fixed and PK ist ready for the repos. Kubuntu
aleady uses it with great success.

Kind regards
 Matthias Klumpp
