I've installed this utility on my workstation and I'm glad to sponsor it.
Your packaging looks good except for the section field in d/control:

-Section: utils
+Section: contrib/utils

^ This is due to copyright issue of Nvidia drier or the CUDA toolkit.
Any software that depends on non-free package, even if itself is
licensed under some kind of free software license, have to enter the
contrib section[1].

And please add the Vcs-Browser and Vcs-Git fields to d/control.
Look up [2] for example.

I'll sponsor this package when the two mentioned problem get fixed.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian!

Thanks, are you willing to sponsor this package?
Otherwise, should I open a new bug against the sponsorship-request package
(as explained at https://mentors.debian.net/sponsors/rfs-howto)  or send a
mail to the mentor mailing list?

I've published the source at https://mentors.debian.net/package/nvtop

Hi  Maxime,

This utility looks cool!

If you intend to catch up with Buster freeze and get it into Buster
in time, please check the release schedule here:


Don't hesitate to ask me or the debian-mentors list if you encountered
any problem.

* Package name    : nvtop
    Version         : 0.3.0
    Upstream Author : Maxime Schmitt <maxime.schmitt91@gmail.com>
* URL             : https://github.com/Syllo/nvtop
* License         : GPL, MIT
    Programming Lang: C
    Description     : Interactive NVIDIA GPU process monitor

Nvtop is a ncurses-based GPU monitoring interface which provides
information on the GPU states (GPU and memory utilization, temperature,
etc) and well as information about the processes executing on the GPUs.


This package provides a terminal-based monitoring tool for the GPUs when
the NVIDIA proprietary drivers are installed. It provides a convenient
interactive alternative to nvidia-smi.

I have personally no Debian packaging experience. I am willing to create
the package and maintain it with some help to kick-start if possible.
