I'm still looking for someone interested in reviewing & sponsoring my
packaging of projectM.

Package details:

* 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
- dev
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
should be
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 might be a candidate to be maintained by the Debian-Multimedia

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
contrib non-free
- dget

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
Kind regards
