Bug#670334: RFS: notion/3+2012042300-1 [ITP] -- Notion tiling tabbed window manager

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: wishlist

Dear mentors,

  I am looking for a sponsor for my package "notion"

   Package name    : notion
   Version         : 3+2012042300-1
   Upstream Author : The Notion Team, p/a arnouten@bzzt.net
   URL             : http://notion.sf.net
   License         : Ion license (LGPL with trademark restrictions)
   Section         : x11

  It builds those binary packages:

    notion     - tiling tabbed window manager designed for keyboard users
    notion-dev - Notion development files

  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 http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/non-free/n/notion/notion_3+2012042300-1.dsc

  Notion is an actively maintained fork of the unmaintained 'ion3', and this 
  package is based on previous ion3 packaging work by Ben Hutchings et al. 

  Several users have expressed interest in a Debian package, both on our 
  mailinglists and the notion ITP bug, #647048.

  Because of extra clauses added to the LGPL for this software (mostly 
  protecting the 'ion' name), we propose this package for the 'non-free' 
  repositories. The ion3 package has been available in the non-free repos
  under the same license before.

  Changes since the last (ion3) upload include:

  * Import new upstream version
  * Updated standards version to 3.9.3 (no change required)
  * Move general fields (homepage, section, priority) to source package
  * Use '3.0 (quilt)' source versions, removes the need to call quilt 
  * Add descriptions for patches
  * Drop empty lintian/overrides directories
  * Fix unescaped hyphen in manpages

   Arnout Engelen
