The list you've posted your request is more or less dead, I'm forwarding
it to the new team mailing list.
The topic on projectm just came up on our irc channel. The software
looks promising, and I think it would be a great addition to our team
package pool. However, I'm afraid that I won't be able to review and
integrate the package into our git repo before next week.
Maybe someone else has time and interest to pick that up?

This message has already been posted to debian-mentors list, where I got
the suggestion to forward the RFS to Debian-Multimedia to ask if someone is
interested in sponsoring the projectM package.
* Package name : projectm
Version : 2.0.1-1
Upstream Author : projectM Team
* URL : http://projectm.sf.net
* License : GPLv2 and LGPLv2.1
Section : sound
It builds these binary packages:
libprojectm-dev - Advanced Milkdrop-compatible music visualization library
libprojectm-qt-dev - projectM Qt4 (development files)
libprojectm-qt1 - projectM Qt4 bindings
libprojectm2 - Advanced Milkdrop-compatible music visualization library
libvisual-projectm - libvisual module for projectM
projectm-data - Advanced Milkdrop-compatible music visualization library -
projectm-jack - projectM JackAudio module
projectm-pulseaudio - projectM PulseAudio module
The package appears to be lintian clean.
The upload would fix these bugs: 565355
There's some "special" stuff to know about this package: The package
replaces the orphaned libvisual-projectm package and the libprojectm source
I got authorization from the maintainer of libprojectm to take over
maintainership over this package.
The pkg produces some Lintian warnings about ancient Autotools scripts or
Windows binaries in the package. (projectM uses CMake, the
Autotools-Scripts are just cruft which isn't used) It also has some
binaries which unnecessarily linked against some libraries. All this stuff
fixed by upstream, but upstream seems to have a lack of manpower at time,
so I can't get a clean tarball or fixes for all issues.
But the overall quality of the pkg is okay, I think.
By including the package in Debian, a lot of other apps would benefit from
it. (Some audio-players use it for music visualization)
The package actually would be maintained by me and Andres Mejia as
The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/p/projectm
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main
I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
