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?
