RFS: libgetdata 0.7.3-6 -- libraries implementing the Dirfile data format

Dear mentors,

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

 * Package name    : libgetdata
   Version         : 0.7.3-6
   Upstream Author : D. V. Wiebe <getdata-devel@lists.sourceforge.net>
 * URL             : http://getdata.sourceforge.net/
 * License         : LGPL
   Section         : libs

This package provides the reference implementation of the Dirfile
Standards, a database format for time-ordered binary data currently
being used mostly in submillimeter astronomy. Bindings in a number of
languages are included.

Steven Benton <stevebenton@rogers.com> has been maintaining this
package in an Ubuntu PPA for several months. I worked with him to make
the package comply with Debian policy and we will co-maintain it going

This upload will make it possible to close bug #556990 (KST unable to
read Dirfile data).

It builds those binary packages:

libf95getdata2 - library to read/write dirfile data - Fortran 95 bindings
libfgetdata2 - library to read/write dirfile data - Fortran 77 bindings
libgetdata++2 - library to read/write dirfile data - C++ bindings
libgetdata-dev - library to read/write dirfile data - devel files (C, C++, F77, F9
libgetdata-tools - library to read/write dirfile data - extra tools
libgetdata4 - library to read/write dirfile data
python-pygetdata - library to read/write dirfile data - python bindings

To access further information about this package, please visit the
following URL:


Please don't mind the lintian helper-templates-in-copyright messages,
evidently lintian doesn't like the string "Upstream Author(s)".

Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this

  dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/libg/libgetdata/libgetdata_0.7.3-6.dsc

We would be delighted to find a sponsor to upload this package.

Many thanks!
