Re: RFS: bubblemon (updated package)
I won't sponsor your package, as I'm not a GNOME user, so I'm not really
qualified (BTW, did you try to contact your previous sponsor?), but
here's my quick review:
* Adam Sjøgren <email@example.com>, 2011-05-14, 23:28:
I am looking for a sponsor for the new version 2.0.16-1 of my package
"bubblemon" (new upstream version).
It builds this binary package:
bubblemon - Bubbling Load Monitoring GNOME Applet
The package appears to be lintian clean (there is a single warning
about the sh locale translation).
If you enable displaying experimental tags, there is one more:
X: bubblemon: duplicate-files usr/share/doc/bubblemon/NEWS.gz usr/share/doc/bubblemon/changelog.gz
...which should be trivial to fix.
The one you mentioned is:
W: bubblemon: unknown-locale-code sh
This one is tad harder. If I understand it correctly, "sh" is a
deprecated language code for Serbo-Croatian. You could install this
language file as "sr@latin", "hr", or both. (I hope there's at least one
-mentors@ reader from Serbia or Croatia who'll correct me if I'm talking
Looking at your changelog:
- Changes to debian/control and debian/copyright are not documented.
- The item about new upstream release could be improved a bit. "New
upstream release. (Closes: #567423, #625314)" could make people think
that there were two bugs requesting a new upstream release... which is
obviously not the case here. How about being more explicit? E.g. you
could use something like this:
| * New upstream release.
| + Update Portugese translation (closes: #567423). Thanks to Américo
| Monteiro for the patch.
| + Fix FTBFS with GCC 4.6 (closes: #625314). Thanks to Matthias Klose
| for the bug report.
