Bug#695130: First commits in git repository on Alioth [ Was: Re: openmotif is now LGPL, retirement of lesstif in jessie?]

Hi Graham and Joël,

[ Graham, should I drop direct e-mail to you, i.e. do you receive the
mail via the PTS anyway? ]

As you might have seen, I set up a git repository on Alioth [1], with a
link to it from the PTS [2]. I used "git import-dscs" to get a proper
history of (open)motif, at least as far as available from snapshot.d.o.
Future tar balls should be imported by using "git import-orig"

It seems you don't have access yet, I fear, see below.

I looked at your work, and it looks good. I have several minor
- Did you make any changes to be able to upgrade the standard version
  (I always note the changes in the changelog, even if there are none)
- Do I understand correctly that you replaced autotools by a dependency
  on dh_autoconf? (Please note these things in the changelog).
- Could we propose a configuration flag for the demo stuff, so that
  upstream can keep track of the demo programs and we don't have to
  patch the source?
- My fix [3] for "format not a string literal and no format arguments"
  is slightly different for sprintf cases. Shouldn't it be better to
  replace the sprintf by a simple strcpy?
- d/motif-client.links is not useful now, I suggest you remove it.
- I like to reduce the amount of lintian warnings as well. I will
  propose some fixes later.
- I was thinking that it might be a good idea to ship the three
  libraries in separate packages, so that we fulfill policy 8.1 and get
  lintian happy on that point.

I would like you to do the git push of the 2.3.4 stuff. Do you want to
wait until you have access to collab-maint, or do you want me to commit
your changes, and contribute my changes as well?
