Dear mentors, hello Andrew,

I corrected these points and re-uploaded the package to Mentors.debian.net:

 * Package name    : tk-table
   Version         : 2.10-1
   Upstream Author : Jeffrey Hobbs <jeff@hobbs.org>
 * URL             : http://tktable.sourceforge.net
 * License         : BSD
   Section         : interpreters

It builds those binary packages:

tk-table   - Table extension for Tcl/Tk

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


Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command:

  dget -x

This is a kind of adoption of the package "tktable2.9" (binary package
"libtktable2.9") which was orphaned since 2008 and removed from unstable
in Feb 2011. See <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=465957>.

It is needed in order to bring the astronomical package "saods9" back
into Debian (ITP: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=655648).

I put tk-table under the maintenance of Debian-Science. I would be glad
if someone uploaded this package for me. I would also very appreciate a
review without an upload since I am not familar with tcl/tk and
therefore I am unsure about whether the package fits into the Debian
tcl/tk subsystem.

Best regards,

Ole Streicher
