Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Kurt B. Kaiser" <kbk@shore.net>

* Package name    : io
  Version         : 2006-10-15
  Upstream Author : "Steve Dekorte" <steve@dekorte.com>
* URL             : http://www.iolang.com
* License         : BSD
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : A small, prototype-based programming language

 The ideas in Io are mostly inspired by Smalltalk (all values are objects),
 Self (prototype-based), NewtonScript (differential inheritance), Act1 (actors
 and futures for concurrency), LISP (code is a runtime inspectable/modifiable
 tree) and Lua (small, embeddable).

 Open source BSD license
 Small VM (~10K C statements, 5K Io specific)
 Reasonably fast (comparable to Python, Perl, Ruby)
 Incremental collector, weak links
 Dynamic typing
 Exceptions
 C99 implementation
 Embeddable
 Multi-state (multiple VMs can run in the same application)
 Actor-based concurrency, coroutines
 64 bit clean

There is another ITP, filed by myself: #454970

Danya Alexeyevsky's and my work resulted in a RFS in February 2008, but 
I didn't find a sponsor. I just saw that I did, in fact, get a reply 
from Barry deFreese, but I missed it. He correctly pointed out that a 
couple of minor lintian problems still remain.

Ok, there are some packages I prepared which date back to early 2008. I 
can't promise to produce new packages quickly as my main platform at 
home currently isn't Linux (sadly) and my time is _very_ limited. Sorry.

Would anyone like to continue maintainership of the Io language 
packages? I could provide help and feedback, but my experience is 
limited, too.

Regards,
Jonas Eschenburg

If there are packages ready and in good shape, I'll sponsor the first upload,
but that's all.

retitle 394315 RFP: io -- A small, prototype-based programming language
noowner 394315
thanks

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of io back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting io, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 394315 ITP: io -- A small, prototype-based programming language
 owner 394315 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <394315@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
