I'm maintaining ChessDB

http://chessdb.sourceforge.net/

but don't have a Debian system here, so are unable to do any testing. 
Someone sent me a binary for Debian, which I put on the Sourceforge site:

http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?group_id=184864&use_mirror=puzzle&filename=chessdb_3.6.7-1_i386.deb&85831364

but that is for an older release.

I understand the name proposed by 'zako' is too long. Can I suggest:

"ChessDB - A multi-platform chess database"

Note the mix of upper and lower case in ChessDB. I've no idea of your 
conventions for Debian, so I'm sure if you want a unix name 'chessdb' 
would be appropriate.

Sorry I can't be or more assistance.

Hello David,

i intended to send you an email to inform that i'm packaging your software but 
i have been busy with your software because this's going to be my first 
debian package.

Nowadays i'm working with the next description:

Description short: chess database management application

Description long:
 ChessDB is a chess database application with a grafical user interface. With
 it you can browse databases of chess games, edit games and search for games   
 by  various criteria. ChessDB uses its own compact and fast database format, 
 but can convert to and from PGN.
 .
 ChessDB is based on Shane's Chess Information Database (Scid) that is no
 longer developed. ChessDB used Scid's code, but has various enhancements, bug
 fixes and new features. Nothing has been removed from Scid at all.

I think the package is just ready so i'm going to ask for a sponsor to upload 
the package to debian unstable.

Thanks,

Hi,

I will close this bug soon, if nobody responds. Reasons:

- No more Info since 2007
- Scid is a very similar package in the distro and is up to date
- chessdb has no updates since 16th August 2007

Contact me with any questions or reopen at will,

Oliver

thanks

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of chessdb 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 chessdb, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 408118 ITP: chessdb -- a free chess database
 owner 408118 !
 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 <408118@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
--

I'm closing this RFP since there is no point in packaging a clone scid

maintained.

Feel free to reopen this bug if I missed anything.
