Bug#660194: RFS: drwright/3.2.4-1 [NEW] -- Typing monitor to force typing breaks

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: wishlist

Dear mentors,

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

* Package name : drwright
Version : 3.2.4-1
Upstream Author :
* URL : http://git.gnome.org/browse/drwright and http://live.gnome.org/drwright
* License : GPL-2.0+
Section : gnome
Description: Typing monitor to force typing breaks
 It's a program that forces you to take regular breaks to prevent RSI
 (Repetitive Strain Injury). It's similar to workrave.
 It can be found in GNOME control center as "typing break". You can specify the
 work interval (how much time you want to work between breaks) and a break
 interval (how long your break will be). It also allows postponing of breaks.
 Finally, there is a button to lock the screen (while the break is active) in
 case you want to step out indefinetely.
 It used to be part of GNOME 2's main core, but is now packaged separately.

Why this package?
It has been requested to be packaged by at least 20 people, see "affected" at launchpad bug http://pad.lv/860776 and askubuntu question: http://askubuntu.com/questions/63999/how-can-i-re-enable-the-typing-break-in-11-10

Extra info:
- It's regularly checked and uploaded at https://launchpad.net/~drwright/+archive/stable
- Package is Lintian clean, with one override (drwright binary: desktop-command-not-in-package), since the desktop file runs "gnome-control-center typing-break"
- Package is patched to replace "OnlyShowIn=GNOME;" with "NotShowIn=KDE;" (since it depends on gnome-control-center). Also patched to disable it by default.

It builds these binary packages:

drwright - Typing monitor to force typing breaks

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

dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/d/drwright/drwright_3.2.4-1.dsc

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

Kind regards,

Savvas Radevic
