Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: normal

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "Jerry (Chess GUI)":

* Package name    : jerry
   Version         : 3.1-0
   Upstream Author : Dominik Klein /
* URL             :
* License         : GNU GPL 2+
   Section         : Games

It builds those binary packages:

   Jerry - a chess program / GUI

Jerry is a chess program/graphical user interface. It caters mostly to 
two use cases:
- a beginner just wanting to play a game against a computer with 
adjustable strength
- a beginner/club player wanting to analyze/annotate a chess game

Jerry has a modern and simple user interface written in Qt/C++, and thus 
integrates nicely into modern Linux desktops. It allow to import/export 
chess games stored in PGN files, supports arbitrary UCI chess engines, 
and supports fully automatic chess game analysis.

The availability of chess GUIs in Linux is rather limited. There are 
powerful packages around, sometimes with more features than Jerry, but 
their GUIs as well as their GUI frameworks are often somewhat dated, and 
do not always meet the expectation of a modern GUI. Hence, I do think 
this would add some benefit for debian users.

A source tarball, a source debian package, as well as a binary for amd64 
are available from

More information about Jerry can also be obtained from
Or just drop me a mail.

kind regards

- Dominik Klein
