Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: wishlist

Dear Mentors,

I'm looking for a sponsor for my package "owlrl"

  Package name    : owlrl
  Version         : 5.2.0
  Upstream Author : Ivan Herman <>
  URL             :
  License         : W3C
  Programming Lang: Python
  Section         : python
  Description     : A simple implementation of the OWL2 RL Profile on top of 
RDFLib: it expands the graph with all possible triples that RDFS and OWL-RL 
defines. It can be used together with RDFLib to expand an RDFLib Graph object, 
or as a stand alone service with its own serialization.

It builds those binary packages:

    python3-owlrl - OWL-RL and RDFS based RDF Closure inferencing

To access further information about this package, please visit the following 

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

    dget -x

The useful python application called RDFClosure by Ivan Herman was recently 
updated to v5 and released on pypi. I am an active developer on owlrl and I 
maintain the pypi release.
I intend to package another tool called pySHACL for debian, but it relies on 
owlrl, so I need owlrl released as a debian package first.
The only requirement of owlrl is rdflib, which is already an actively 
maintained debian package.

I intend to personally be the active maintainer of this package (via a 
I have not released a debain package before, I will be looking for a sponsor to 
get this (owlrl) and pySHACL packaged and published, perhaps the maintainer or 
rdflib would like to sponsor this package.
