Bug#976120: RFS: qabc/2.0-1 [ITP] -- minimal GUI for ABC music notation

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: wishlist

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "qabc":

 * Package name    : qabc
   Version         : 2.0-1
   Upstream Author : Benoît Rouits <brouits@free.fr>
 * URL             : http://brouits.free.fr/qabc/
 * License         : GPL-3+
 * Vcs             : https://github.com/be1/qabc
   Section         : misc

It builds those binary packages:

  qabc - minimal GUI for ABC music notation

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/q/qabc/qabc_2.0-1.dsc

Changes for the initial release:

 qabc (2.0-1) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Initial release. (Closes: #975688)

QAbc has not yet an equivalent software in Debian. It's written in C++/Qt, uses libfluidsynth for synthesis, and makes use of abc2midi binary (from abcmidi package) to generate temporary midi files to be played. Thus, abcmidi has been placed in the "Recommends" section of the control file, but could be preferably placed in Depends... ?

QAbc also includes some modified source code from abcm2ps in a way to workaround Qt's poorness in SVG rendering (see QTBUG-88494 in qt.io).

As sometimes a screenshot is worth better than a long explanation, you can see a picture on the upstream page: http://brouits.free.fr/qabc/

I hope this program will retain your attention and will be included into Debian.

Have a nice week,
