Package: sponsorship-requests Severity: normal Dear mentors,
I am looking for a sponsor for my package "gnustep-base". * Package name : gnustep-base Version : 1.26.0-1 Upstream Author : Richard Frith-Macdonald <r...@gnu.org>, Adam Fedor <fe...@gnu.org> and many others * URL : http://gnustep.org * License : LGPL-2.1+ (library), GPL-3+ (tools/daemons) Section : gnustep It builds these binary packages: gnustep-base-common - GNUstep Base library - common files gnustep-base-doc - Documentation for the GNUstep Base Library gnustep-base-runtime - GNUstep Base library - daemons and tools libgnustep-base-dev - GNUstep Base header files and development libraries libgnustep-base1.26 - GNUstep Base library To access further information about this package, please visit the following URL: https://mentors.debian.net/package/gnustep-base Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command: dget -x https://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/g/gnustep-base/gnustep-base_1.26.0-1.dsc Git repository (experimental branch): https://salsa.debian.org/gnustep-team/gnustep-base Changes since the last upload: * New upstream release: - Detects ICU with pkg-config (Closes: #915714). - SONAME change: libgnustep-base1.25 -> 1.26. * Remove patches applied upstream: - portmessage-msgid.patch; - icu-60.patch; - hurd-systemuptime.patch. * debian/patches/pkg-config-macro.patch: Remove hunks applied upstream (that is, all of them). However, upstream opted to cater for ancient pkg-config which does not provide the PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG macro and this approach still triggers a lintian warning; update accordingly. * debian/patches/fix-spelling-error.patch: Refresh. * debian/patches/fix-tests-network.patch: Refresh and mark 2 more tests as hopeful (GSXML). * debian/patches/series: Update. * debian/compat: Bump to 12. * debian/templates/control.m4 (Build-Depends): Bump debhelper requirement to match the compat level. (Standards-Version): Claim compliance with 4.3.0; no changes needed. * debian/control: Regenerate, reflecting the SONAME change. * debian/rules: Replace all occurrences of "messages=yes" with "$(verbose)" to support "terse" in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS. (v_make): Bump to 2.7.0-4 for "terse" support. (override_dh_installinit): Also pass --no-start (Closes: #913914). (override_dh_auto_install-indep): Delete duplicate or otherwise unnecessary files which trigger lintian warnings. (override_dh_compress): Remove; not necessary with compat 12. * debian/upstream/signing-key.asc: Minimize. * debian/gnustep-base-doc.lintian-overrides: New; override package-contains-documentation-outside-usr-share-doc for a node from the Texinfo manual in HTML format; it is in GNUSTEP_DOC on purpose. * debian/gbp.conf: New file. * debian/templates/gnustep-base-runtime.install.in: Add usr/share/man as all manpages are installed by the upstream build system; there's no need to install them explicitly. * debian/gnustep-base-runtime.manpages: Delete; not really necessary. * debian/not-installed: New file; explicitly list all files which are not installed on purpose. * debian/copyright: Add explicit entry for Source/Additions/Unicode.m, which is now (a portion of) under the Expat license and copyrighted by Bjoern Hoehrmann. Bump copyright years for Debian packaging. There were copyrightable changes upstream in 2018 but these are not actually reflected in the source files so leave statements as they are. * debian/clean: Update for the new SONAME.
