Well, it seems I don't have a lot of options now, do I? :)
OK, since you want to maintain them so much, they're yours.
But please, next time look at the ITPs before packaging something, it's a
shame to have duplicated work.
As I said, I have made the rote packages too therefore I have some notes on
a) librote-dev should depend on libncurses5-dev (you'll find out yourself
when you try to pdebuild anyterm ;)
b) You _have_ to package 0.2.6+20050511 (CVS snapshot). It has some very
important fixes - without them anyterm doesn't work very well, read the
c) (minor) Upstream COPYING has LGPL v2.1 - you are referencing "LGPL
version 2 or newer" in debian/copyright.
I'm CCing Phil Endecott, upstream author of Anyterm who has offered to help.
Please look at the discussion in #311597, Phil has made some interesting
Good luck, I'm looking forward in seeing these in Debian!
