Bug#867727: RFS: parlatype/1.5.1-1 [ITP]

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: wishlist

Dear mentors,

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

* Package name    : parlatype
  Version         : 1.5.1-1
  Upstream Author : Gabor Karsay <gabor.karsay@gmx.at>
* URL             : http://gkarsay.github.io/parlatype/
* License         : GPL-3
  Section         : gnome

It builds those binary packages:

gir1.2-parlatype-1.0 - Library for Parlatype - gir bindings
libparlatype-dev - Library for Parlatype - development version
libparlatype-doc - Documentation files for the Parlatype library
libparlatype1 - Library for Parlatype - runtime version
parlatype  - Minimal audio player for manual speech transcription
parlatype-libreoffice-helpers - Set of macros for LibreOffice

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 https://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/p/parlatype/parlatype_1.5.1-1.dsc

More information about parlatype can be obtained from http://gkarsay.github.io/parlatype/.

I am also the upstream author. The first public release was in January 2016, the program is in a good state, is already translated in a few languages and fills a gap for an easy to use transcription utility (manual transcription). I'm not aware of another program in Debian for GNOME, targeting transcriptions and also offering a waveform.

I was packaging it already for a time for Ubuntu. The package was built with pbuilder in a sid chroot. There is one lintian warning that I don't know what to do with: hardening-no-fortify-functions. I think the compiler flags are set right, but I don't know if I should override it.

There's also one thing unclear to me about the procedure: Is this sponsorship request enough or should I file a WNPP bug, too?

Thank you
Gabor Karsay
