Bug#961179: FWD: RFS: inkscape-textext/1.0.1-1 [ITP] -- Re-editable LaTeX graphics for Inkscape

Hello TeX maintainers,

I'm forwarding my RFS advertisement for this package, which may be
of interest to some of you.

Thank you for your consideration,


Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "inkscape-textext"

 * Package name    : inkscape-textext
   Version         : 1.0.1-1
   Upstream Author : Jan Winkler <enceladus@posteo.de>
 * URL             : https://textext.github.io/textext
 * License         : AGPL
 * Vcs             : https://github.com/textext/textext
   Section         : graphics
   Description     : Re-editable LaTeX graphics for Inkscape

TexText is a Python plugin for the vector graphics editor Inkscape
providing the possibility to add and re-edit LaTeX generated SVG
elements to your drawing.

 Key features
 . Windows/Linux/MacOS support
 . LaTeX generated SVG elements can be re-edited later
 . Multi-line editor with syntax highlighting
 . Compilation with PdfLaTeX, XeLaTeX or LuaLaTex
 . Interoperable scaling in TexText and Inkscape
 . Font size match with Inkscape text
 . Customizable TeX preamble (additional packages, parskip, parindent, etc.)
 . Colorization via TeX commands/Inkscape is kept after re-editing
 . Alignment anchor of the produced output
 . Preview images

Since my last upload, upstream has released 1.0 (and 1.0.1).  Now that
there is an upstream release, the package is suitable for unstable, rather
than experimental.  I've renamed the package to inkscape-textext, aligning
with the naming of other inkscape extensions I have found.

The package is lintian clean, with the exception of the warning about
upstream tarball signing (and tests) [1].  I'm currently interacting with
upstream to get signed releases [2].

The packaging is maintained in Debian salsa [3], and builds in pbuilder.
