Package: wnpp
Version: N/A; reported 2002-09-15
Severity: normal

I request an adopter for the fpm package.
The package description is:
 Figaro's Password Manager is a program that allows you to securely store the
 passwords you use on the web.

My reasons are as follows:

1. Can no longer build for unstable. I have tried hacking at
the Makefiles, etc, but it still won't build. Also I get
warnings for issues that I just fixed. eg. for some reason
the intl directory is no longer created.

2. Somebody with more understanding of Gnome, Glade, will probably
be able to fix this faster then I can.

3. This package is probably better suited to someone who
tracks unstable (as all my computers run stable). It is no longer
possible to have the same version compile on woody and unstable
due to the build-depends change (see below).

4. No active upstream maintainer.

This package contains 3 bugs, 2 which should be easy to fix, not
sure about the other one (which was forwarded upstream to the
non-active upstream maintainer.)

The version in Debian requires the build depends to be changed
from gdk-imlib-dev to gdk-imlib1-dev. I can provide my source
with my other changes if requested, but it might be better to
use the Debian version as a starting point.

retitle 160916 O: fpm -- Password Manager
thanks

After receiving one more bug report, I have decided to orphan fpm,
because:

5. The code is of bad quality, see bugs #144895 and #161596.

Note for bug #160916.

I am going to resume maintaining fpm with help from Manuel, because
we have now got it compiling again[1].

Is it just a matter of adding:

Uploaders: Manuel Estrada Sainz <ranty@debian.org>

to the control file?

Ok, will do so.

Notes:
[1] so far fpm has build on all platforms except s390 (CVS is
broken) and mipsel (build depends are uninstallable). These aren't
fpm's fault. Yeah!
