Package: sponsorship-requests

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "gnustep-back".

 * Package name    : gnustep-back
   Version         : 0.27.0-1
   Upstream Author : Fred Kiefer <>,
                     Adam Fedor <>,
                     Alexander Malmberg <>,
                     Banlu Kemiyatorn <> et al
 * URL             :
 * License         : LGPL-2+ (bundles), GPL-3+ (tools)
   Section         : gnustep

It builds these binary packages:

gnustep-back-common - GNUstep GUI Backend - common files
gnustep-back0.27 - GNUstep GUI Backend
gnustep-back0.27-art - GNUstep GUI Backend (art)
gnustep-back0.27-cairo - GNUstep GUI Backend (cairo)

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

Git repository (experimental branch):

Changes since the last upload:

  * New upstream release:
    - SONAME change: libgnustep-back0.26 -> 0.27.

    - link-libs.patch;

  * debian/templates/control.m4 (Build-Depends): Bump debhelper
    requirement to match the compat level.  Require gnustep-make >=
    2.7.0-4 for "terse" support.
    (Standards-Version): Claim compliance with 4.3.0; no changes needed.
  * debian/control: Regenerate, reflecting the SONAME change.
  * debian/rules (override_dh_auto_install): Delete duplicate files
    already shipped at /usr/share/doc.
    (override_dh_auto_build): Use "$(verbose)" instead of "messages=yes"
    to support "terse" in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS.

P.S. This package depends on gnustep-base/1.26.0-1 (#918682) and

Package gnustep-back version 0.27.0-1 is in NEW now,
and the package at mentors is not newer (2019-01-08) than the package in NEW 
so there is currently no package to sponsor.

Please remove the package from mentors or mark it "needs sponsor = no".
If for some reason you need to replace the package in NEW,
then you can upload an updated package to mentors
and feel free to reopen this RFS 918690 or open a new RFS.
