RFS: libpar2 (reupload to Debian)

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package libpar2:

* Package name    : libpar2
  Version         : 0.2
  Upstream Author : Peter Brian Clements
	            Francois Lesueur <flesueur AT users.sourceforge.net>
* URL             : http://parchive.sourceforge.net
* License         : GPL-2+
  Description     : Library for performing common tasks related to PAR
                    recovery sets

 LibPar2 allows for the generation, modification, verification,
 and repairation of PAR v1.0 and PAR v2.0(PAR2) recovery sets,
 as described in

This package was already part of Debian, but got removed in bug #620497.

As I am the maintainer of nzbget (http://packages.qa.debian.org/nzbget),
which can use the libpar2 library for automatic detection of
broken/incomplete files, I want to re-introduce this package to Debian.
I looked through the code and have done some cleanup-work and applied
some patches that were posted in the sourceforge tracker. I am aware
that I will be the de-facto upstream for the Debian-Users of this package.

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:

dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/l/libpar2/libpar2_0.2-2.dsc

The packaging information is also available in Git:


All comments are appreciated.
