Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the prcs package.

The package description is:
 PRCS, the Project Revision Control System, is the front end to a set
 of tools that (like CVS) provide a way to deal with sets of files and
 directories as an entity, preserving coherent versions of the entire
 Its purpose is similar to that of SCCS, RCS, and CVS, but (according
 to its authors, at least), it is much simpler than any of those
 Emacs-Lisp support is distributed in a separate package, prcs-el.  Another
 package called prcs-synch contains a tool to synchronize PRCS projects
 between repositories, both locally and remotely.
 Homepage: http://prcs.sourceforge.net

This package is practically dead upstream, even if its author claims that he
still intend to work on it.  I have dreamed for a long time of PRCS
replacing CVS worldwide, which could have happened if PRCS2 would have come
out. Instead of keeping waiting for that, I converted myself to Subversion
and I must confess that I have no intention to use PRCS anymore.  It is too
bad, because PRCS is a very well written piece of software.  Unfortunately,
it is becoming a museum item.

Under these circumstances it makes no sense for me to keep the maintainance
of the Debian package.  For those distressed about losing PRCS forever, I
added a present in my last upload (version 1.3.3-3): a script, called
prcs2svn, which converts a PRCS project in a Subversion repository. It is
not perfect, but allows to store the history of your projects under PRCS
control in a SVN repository.  I also contributed it to the prcs project at
SourceForge (but I am afraid it will never be released...).  You can find
the script either in the Debian package or at:


The binary Debian packages being orphaned are the following:

They are lintian-clean, apart a warning regarding CVS directories in the
source tarball.  There is a substantial amount of bug reports filled against
the packages: 8 for prcs, 2 for prcs-el, and 2 for prcs-utils, and 1 for
prcs-synch.  11 of them are tagged upstream and one relates to FTBFS on
am64d using gcc 4.0 (there is a patch for it).  Only one bug against prcs-el
is pure-Debian.

I was very pleased in maintaining the prcs package over 6 years.  I wish
good luck to the next maintainer!

 prcs (1.3.3-5) unstable; urgency=low
   * The "Stayin' alive, stayin' alive" release.
   * New maintainer (closes: #293805).
   * debian/control: Update maintainer contact information.
   * debian/prcs-el.emacsen-startup:
     + Use debian-pkg-add-load-path-item, don't special-case load-path
       modification for Emacs 19 which is long gone (closes: #272152).
     + Do nothing if the package has been removed but not purged.
     + Add source files to load-path.
   * debian/patches/10_prcs-el_dirs.dpatch: New patch to prcs-hooks.el,
     wrap call to directory-files with condition-case to workaround a bug
     where opening files in executable but non readable directories
     signalled an error, many thanks to Aaron M. Ucko <ucko@debian.org>
     (closes: #294074).
   * debian/patches/20_prcs-mv.dpatch: New patch, bring prcs-mv in sync
     with latest upstream (somewhat belatedly), patch submitted by Yann
     Dirson <dirson@debian.org> (closes: #204265).
   * debian/patches/30_diff-N-corruption.dpatch: New patch, fixes a bug
     where calling 'prcs diff -N' on a project where files have been
     locally removed would completely wipe the PRCS project file...
     (closes: #159853).
   * debian/patches/40_prcs_checkin.dpatch: New patch, initial checkins
     cannot be run with --no-action because PRCS needs the repository
     entry, clarify error message to make this more explicit in the command
     output (closes: #149811).
   * debian/patches/50_prcserror_segv.dpatch: New patch, check pointer in
     prcserror.cc before dereferencing it to prevent a segmentation fault,
     this could happen in some cases when removing already deleted
     attributes from a project file during a merge (closes: #177879).
   * debian/patches/60_prcs_empty-locks.dpatch: New patch, when trying to
     get a lock on the repository, ignore empty lock files instead of
     bailing out with the "Inconsistant lock information" message: empty
     lock files get created when the filesystem runs out of space at
     checkin time and we should just ignore them (closes: #156588).
   * debian/patches/70_man_fixes.dpatch: New patch, fixes a few typos and
     spelling errors in man pages.
   * debian/patches/50_g++-3.4.dpatch: Dropped (it doesn't actually fix the
     build with G++ 3.4).
   * debian/patches/80_build_fixes.dpatch: New patch:
     + (Conditionally) use new __gnu_cxx::stdio_filebuf prototype for g++
       versions newer than 3.3 (closes: #268350).
     + Change hash.cc to cast to long instead of int, for lack of a better
       fix (closes: #287958).
     + Drop erroneous fdopen change from the previous patch (closes: #294221).
   * debian/patches/90_prcs-synch_misc.dpatch: New patch to prcs-synch:
     + Change the doc to say 'prcs-synch' instead of 'synch' when referring
       to the script since it's how it's called in Debian.
     + Apply a patch from "R. Church" <rc@ghostbitch.org> to fix
       repository sync failures over SSH (closes: #134047).
   * debian/patches/00list: Update.
   * debian/control: Update build dependency on dpatch to >= 2.0.9 for the
     new style patches.
