Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: normal

  Dear mentors,

  I am looking for a sponsor for my package

 * Package name    : rhythmbox-plugin-alternative-toolbar
   Version         : 0.17.5-1
  Upstream Author : David Mohammed <>
* URL             :
* License         : GPL3+
   Section         : misc

  It builds those binary packages:

    rhythmbox-plugin-alternative-toolbar - Enhanced play controls and
interface for Rhythmbox

  To access further information about this package, please visit the
following URL:

  Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command:

    dget -x


I'm concerned with how mentors is reporting my upload

"Buildsystem: Package uses debhelper with an old compatibility level
No compatibility level set!"

both the debian/control debhelper and compat values are 10 - so I
don't understand how mentors is reporting the upload.

"Watch file is not present"

debian/watch definitely exists.  When I ran a uscan --force-download,
the tarball was correctly downloaded and the signature was validated.
So what does this mean on the mentors page?

With regards to the package the following package tests have been completed:

grep -riE 'fixme|todo|hack|xxx' .
pyflakes3 .
pep8 --ignore W191 .
find -type f \( -iname '*.po' -o -iname '*.pot' \) -exec msgfmt
--check --check-compatibility --check-accelerators
--output-file=/dev/null {} \;

I'm content with the output from the above.

from the built and installed package:

adequate rhythbox-plugin-alternative-toolbar

  Changes since the last upload:

    * New upstream release
    - latest translations
    - display hamburger menu by default for modern toolbar
    - fix display of blank source names in the sidebar
    - fix display of column names in french locale
