Bug#691270: RFS: szg/1.0-1 [ITP] -- friendly greeter

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: normal [important for RC bugs, wishlist for new packages]

Dear mentors,

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

 Package name    : szg
 Version         : 1.0-1
 Upstream Author : SZABÓ Gergely <szg@subogero.com>
 URL             : http://github.com/subogero/szg
 License         : WTFPL
 Section         : math

It builds those binary packages:

  szg   - Fast command line calculator

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/main/s/szg/szg_1.0-1.dsc

More information about szg can be obtained from http://github.com/subogero/szg.

szg already has a few ecstatic users. I have a deb package repo for it,
but I think it deserves real Debianization.
I also went through the command line calculators in the math section,
and szg still has has some unique features.

Instead of arbitrary precisions it concentrates on ease of use.
It takes the desktop calculator workflow (first operand can be omitted) one
step further, so every missing operand is substituted with the last result.
There are actually 3 precision modes: unsigned int, int and float.
Decimal, octal, hex and binary formats are supported.

The package is also Lintian error-free. Not warning-free though,
so I'd appreciate some help.

 SZABÓ Gergely
