Bug#886438: RFS: gnumail/1.2.3-1 [RC]

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: important

Dear mentors,

I' looking for a sponsor for my package "gnumail".

 * Package name    : gnumail
   Version         : 1.2.3-1
   Upstream Author : Ludovic Marcotte <ludovic@Sophos.ca> and others
 * URL             : http://www.nongnu.org/gnustep-nonfsf/gnumail/
 * License         : GPL-2+
   Section         : gnustep

It builds these binary packages:

 gnumail.app - Mail client for GNUstep
 gnumail.app-common - Mail client for GNUstep (common files)

To access further information about this package, please visit the
following URL:


Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this

  dget -x https://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/g/gnumail/gnumail_1.2.3-1.dsc

Or clone the pkg-gnustep repository:

  gbp clone https://anonscm.debian.org/git/pkg-gnustep/gnumail.git

Changes since the last upload:

  * New upstream release.
  * Set urgency to "high" due to the nature of the bug it fixes.
  * debian/watch: Switch to Savannah.
  * debian/gnumail.app-common.install:
  * debian/gnumail.app.links: Don't install the Face bundle; removed
    upstream due to unclear licensing.
  * debian/gnumail.app.install: Don't install a dangling symlink to the
    non-existing Headers directory and the .xpm icon.
  * debian/rules: Strip trailing whitespace.
    (DEB_LDFLAGS_MAINT_APPEND): Define to the previous value and pass
    dpkg-buildflags explicitly to restore hardening and strip the libssl
    dependency (Closes: #886305).  Pass $(optim), restoring lost support
    for noopt in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS.
    (override_dh_auto_install): Pass GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_LIBRARIES to install
    the framework in /usr/lib/gworkspace.app as per Policy §10.2.  Delete
    dangling Headers symlink.
    (override_dh_auto_clean): Remove; completely unnecessary.
    (override_dh_link): Remove override and just delete the invalid
    .desktop file in the override_dh_auto_install recipe.
    (override_dh_makeshlibs): New override; pass --noscripts.
  * debian/compat: Bump compat level to 11.
  * debian/control (Homepage): Switch to the new one at nongnu.org.
    (Build-Depends): Require debhelper >= 11.  Remove obsolete
    libgnustep-gui-dev version requirement.  Add gnustep-make (>= 2.7.0-3)
    for the optim variable definition.
    (Breaks, Replaces): Remove; obsolete.
    (Standards-Version): Claim compliance with 4.1.3.
  * debian/GNUMail.xpm: Delete as the menu file is gone.
  * debian/patches/spelling-fixes.patch: Refresh.
  * debian/patches/link-libs.patch: Refresh and remove -lssl from the
    toplevel makefile, just in case.
  * debian/changelog: Delete trailing whitespace.
  * debian/copyright: Update Source location and copyright years; add more
    copyright holders and missing licenses (LGPL-2+ for the StepTalk
    support and LPGL-2.1+ for some icons).
