Hello! I would like to anounce debtemplate, script I use to fill in RFS and ITP requests. The common method according to mentors.debian.org is to copy-and-edit template, which often results in incomplete or inconsistent requests.
In contrast, debtemplate, invoked from root of source package, collects many information, like licenses, urls, homepage, author, changelog automatically. Also implementation language is inferred from build dependencies to a certain extend. In current state it has little error checking -- for example, non dep-5 debian/copyright would result in not-so user-friendly python traceback. If you want to try: # apt-get install python3-jinja2 python3-debian python3-setuptools $ git clone https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/users/kaction-guest/debtemplate.git $ cd debtemplate && python3 setup.py install --user Now you change directory to root of some source package, like: $ apt-get source runit $ cd runit-2.1.2 $ debtemplate rfs [pretty report on stdout, suited for piping to sendmail] I anounce it to resolve following questions: - Is it useful for anyone but me? - Should it be packaged as native Debian package? - What changes are required for it? - Are there persons, who are interested in improving it, like adding code, specific for languages I do not use (Java, Ruby, Erlang)? -- X-Web-Site: https://sinsekvu.github.io | Note that I process my email in batch, Accept-Languages: eo,ru,en | at most once every 24 hours. If matter Accept: text/plain, text/x-diff | is urgent, you have my phone number.
