please note Debian is not intended as a possible platform to promote and
advocate your own project. You should have a notable user base before
you are actually trying to introduce a package to Debian.
Don't get me wrong, it is perfectly fine to have upstream authors
interested to maintain their own projects in Debian - no one else would
know them better than they do. What David wanted to advise you is, you
should - perhaps - think whether your program really already has enough
users, which would justify inclusion to Debian targeted to a large
audience in contrast to some enthusiastic contributors. You seem not to
have really much downloads .
Moreover, all we can do, is to suggest you what you could or should do.
It is still fine if you keep trying to find a sponsor for your package
once you passed through at least the things David mentioned - but the
tenor of our comments seem to suggest you should perhaps wait a bit more
until you really want to push Debian inclusion. Since your build
dependencies are non free (as of our DFSG, as David explained you
already) things are even more complicated (for you).
with kind regards,
