I am the upstream author of Toonloop and wish to package its new 2.0.0 release that is fresh. :)


I opened an ITP bug for its version 1.2, but the dependencies never got packaged. Meanwhile, I rewrote it. Version 2 is now ready. Here is the old ITP bug:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=584228

I guess I could simply answer to this bug and say that the version
2.0.0 is now available?

Yeah, good idea to do that, to indicate to potential followers of that bugreport that you are actively working on it.


Is there anyone interested in working with me to package it? I'm using CDBS to package a software in C++ using Clutter, GStreamer and some Boost libraries. The packaging for Ubuntu is at http://github.com/aalex/ubuntu-toonloop and it should take me about 15 minutes to package it for Debian. (I had tried with a slightly older version and it was right) There are a few lintian warnings about useless links to some libraries, but that's it.

I am interested. Won't use this tool myself, most likely, but know that there is interest among teachers, e.g. in Skolelinux, and want to help make it available to them.

But have promised to help with other packages too, and my TODO list is piling up :-/

So have patience, perhaps try persuade others to work with you too, and do ping me if you feel I am taking too long to get back to you on this.


Kind regards,

 - Jonas
