Bug#841876: RFS: ucommon/7.0.0-7~exp3 [RC]

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: important

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for the package "ucommon":

  gbp clone https://anonscm.debian.org/git/pkg-voip/ucommon.git

For verification, these are the current branch heads:

  git show-ref --heads
  e2698bd93a58783bd5e97cc6b1319dbe568d9e25 refs/heads/master
  7a96f5b8ac83e705eab78d5b8e3f6a36ad03fe39 refs/heads/pristine-tar
  d80ef16d8a9371675a4aaacd84bfefe4ad278bd8 refs/heads/upstream

For background: I had asked the current maintainer whether I could
help with the maintenance of the package, given that it has had an RC
bug (#831211) for a while and is a dependency of the package twinkle.

Jonas welcomed not only my offer; to my delight, he also welcomed [1, 2]
a conversion from CDBS to short-form dh to make my maintenance easier,
under the condition that I commit to the package for the long term.

This version builds with a valid symbols file on amd64 and without
lintian warnings. Inferring from tests on i386, the package should
also be close to building on other archs. Before I adapt the symbols
file using arch-specific constraints, I would like to survey all archs
using the improved symbols file with an upload to experimental.

Changes since the last upload:

ucommon (7.0.0-7~exp3) experimental; urgency=medium

  * Switch from CDBS to dh
  * Build depend on graphviz for arch-independent builds only
  * Add dependency on libjs-jquery to ucommon-doc
  * Bump debhelper compat level to 10
  * Replace -dbg package with automatic -dbgsym package
  * Build with bindnow hardening flag
  * Substitute arch-dependent size_t in symbols file
  * Exclude useless autogenerated doxygen files
  * Register HTML documentation with doc-base
  * Fix spelling mistakes found by lintian
  * Use /git/ instead of /cgit/ in Vcs-Browser field
  * Add myself to Uploaders

If you decide to sponsor this package, please upload the source only
so that buildd logs are available for all archs. I will push a release
tag to the git repository after the package has been uploaded.
