Bug#913493: RFS: geneweb/6.08+git20181019+dfsg-1

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-CC: 073plan@gmail.com, bubulle@debian.org

Dear mentors,
Dear Boyuan Yang,
Dear Christian Perrier,

I am looking for a sponsor for the package "geneweb", that is in Debian since July 2000.
Actually, I have worked with Christian Perrier since 2 1/2 years to maintain this package.
In a recent private communication with Christian, he informed me that he is no longer available to continue package maintenance and sponsorship, and referred me to debian-mentors.
Following closure of #908850 and a e-mail communication with Boyuan Yang, here is a new upload for the geneweb package.

* Package name    : geneweb
  Version         : 6.08+git20181019+dfsg-1
  Upstream Author : Daniel de Rauglaudre et al.
* URL             : https://github.com/geneweb/geneweb
* License         : GPL-2
  Section         : misc

It builds those binary packages:
geneweb    - genealogy software with web interface
geneweb-gui - graphical user interface to Geneweb genealogy software
gwsetup    - utilities to configure and manipulate Geneweb databases
gwtp  - web interface interacting with Geneweb databases

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/g/geneweb/geneweb_6.08+git20181019+dfsg-1.dsc
