Package: wnpp
Version: N/A; reported 2002-04-20
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the ditty package.
The package description is:
 Ditty enables you to play simple melodies from the command line. It does NOT
 require a sound card, as it can use the built-in speaker to play these
 melodies just as easily. (Note: in order for the built-in speaker to be used,
 ditty's stdout must be connected to a tty.  Certain terminal emulators, such
 as xterm, don't support the sound controls.  If you aren't using the sound
 card method, you should generally run ditty from a *real* pseudo-terminal).
 Some things that may make ditty fun to use are:
 Adding sound-effects to .bash_login and .bash_logout or other shellscripts.

 ditty      - Allows you to play melodies from your built-in speaker
Closes: 124551 143758
 ditty (0.2-2) unstable; urgency=low
   * Taking over the package, it is mega-cool (Closes: #143758)
   * Fixing description, shellscripts->shell scripts (Closes: #124551)
   * I am tone-deaf and don't own a sound card, so I can't do much
     about 112326 at the moment. Any help would be appreciated.
   * Fixed comment in debian/rules -- we're installing into debian/ditty,
     not into debian/tmp
   * Update standards version.
     * This is a fairly simple package, no need to do anything special.
   * Modify description -- "real pseudo terminals" is silly.
   * Fixed copyright -- .dit files have an exception
   * Fixed manual to refer to example as they exist in the debian package
     * notes.dit -> /usr/share/doc/ditty/examples/notes.dit
     * A mouthfull, but will work out of the box, and it's a cool ditty.
   * Added a note that upstream download location died.
