Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: wishlist
Control: block 839980 by -1

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for the package "golang-github-hlandau-buildinfo":

  git clone
  cd golang-github-hlandau-buildinfo && pristine-tar checkout 

This package is a prerequisite for uploading a new version of
acmetool, a client for the Let’s Encrypt certificate authority.

For verification, these are the current branch heads:

  git show-ref --heads
  278a87ca9186c43925c564be9ade82b25a12bb8a refs/heads/master
  f8cc00475abd68814db817c30cc7a65c3530b55a refs/heads/pristine-tar
  d25114febd16c3709c4867007543e22dd622f0c5 refs/heads/upstream

Please note that while the package has to go through the NEW queue,
the code is already contained in the archive as part of the package
golang-github-hlandau-degoutils. The upstream author has recently
split the former into three separate packages (goutils, buildinfo,
dexlogconfig), of which buildinfo is the second in the dependency chain.

Please see these messages on pkg-go-maintainers for a review, which
discusses in particular the implications on the Debian packaging of
the novel licensing scheme devised by the upstream author.
