Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

The package nemesi, does not have a flesh&blood maintainer, and the
mailinglist listed as maintainer has never shown any activity (but the package
has been RC buggy since the very first (and so far only) upload). Therefore, I
orphan this package now.  If you want to be the new maintainer, please take it
-- see for detailed
instructions how to adopt a package properly.

NOTE: the package never has been built before, maybe it better can be removed
instead. On the other hand, this package was RFP'd (#274610), so there might
be interest in it.

Description: standards-compliant multimedia streaming client
 NeMeSI is a streaming client that allows user to enjoy playback of multimedia
 files with low latency transport over IP-based networks. This software is
 fully compliant with  IETF's standards for real-time streaming of multimedia
 contents over Internet. NeMeSI implements RTSP - Real-Time Streaming Protocol
 (RFC2326) and RTP/RTCP - Real-Time Transport Protocol/RTP Control Protocol
 (RFC3550) supporting the RTP Profile for Audio and Video Conferences with
 Minimal Control (RFC3551).
 NeMeSI is the official streaming client for the Open Media Streaming Project
 ( which is is a free/libre project software for the
 development of a platform for the streaming of multimedia contents. The
 platform is based on the full support of the IETF's standards for the real-time
 data transport over IP. The aim of the project is to provide an open solution,
 free and interoperable along with the proprietary streaming applications
 currently dominant on the market.

Justification: No real developer, no activity ever

reassign 315245
retitle 315245 RM: nemesi -- RoQA: orphaned package has never been free of RC bugs

This package has obviously never been cared for in Debian, with one upload
ever and that upload containing RC-buggy build-dependencies that were
reported shortly after the upload.  There has been no acknowledgement of
this bug after 80 days.  Please remove this package from unstable; it can be
re-uploaded when someone is prepared to maintain it properly.

it).  Please also remember that the changes have been done on the
master archive ( and will not propagate to any
mirrors ( included) until the next cron.daily run at the

unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency
