Ok, I'm completely at fault here. Some time ago, I was looking for a
simple KDE program to package, and my eye fell on konversation. I
can't believe I missed your ITP ( I may have looked before it was
filed ). Anyway, Riku just sponsored my package in unstable
So, as for resolving this:
* I agree with you taking over the konversation package, since I'm at
fault here, and you seem to know the program better ( I use irssi
for irc ;) )
* Maybe we could discuss some of the differences between the two
+ the manpage: I used a manpage as generated with the kdemangen.pl
from kdesdk/scripts ( with some manual tuning ), and as such, it
documents far more options of the program than yours ( I suppose
it's hand-written ). Not sure which is better though.
+ the rules file: I think you should read
/usr/share/kdelibs4-dev/Packaging.txt about some general things to
remember when packaging kde apps. Most importantly, the
debianrules and the menu files stuff is pretty important
+ there is a .menu file present in my package.
+ otherwise, your package is identical or better, imho, so nice work
Anyway, I'm sorry about this, I hope we can work this out...
