I was under the imprssion that the URL field is the location of the 
upstream site; since devotee is part of the Debian project, I put the URL 
as http://debian.org. The page where I downloaded the source then goes 
into the copyright file. If I'm mistaken, please tell me now so I can 
correct the control and copyright files locally.

Hi,
looking at the fact that other people might want to check 
the source or the project you are filing an ITP for I think 
this is a rather strange rationale.

Kind regards

I've since made the correction in my local package.

Here's the source URL for future reference:

It isn't.  It's written by a Debian developer and used by Debian, but you
won't find any information about it on www.debian.org and it's not released
by Debian (though the code is hosted using Debian resources).

The download page is what should go in the copyright file, yes.  But
"www.debian.org" isn't really suitable as either a homepage URL or a
download URL for devotee; www.debian.org is not a homepage for the *devotee*
project.

And historically, we didn't have Homepage fields in debian/control anyway;
the "URL" field in the ITP template is meant to give people a way to get at
the original sources.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of devotee back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 18 months.

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

 retitle 470995 ITP: devotee -- Debian voting system
 owner 470995 !
 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 <470995@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

So uh... That arch.debian.org link doesn't work anymore.

In this election period, it seems to me quite important to be able to
review the source code running the said elections...

Thanks,

Answering my own question:

http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=users/srivasta/debian/devotee.git;a=summary

git clone git://anonscm.debian.org/users/srivasta/debian/devotee.git

This also requires the submodule:

anarcat@marcos:devotee$ git submodule update --init
Submodule 'debian' (git://git.debian.org/~srivasta/debian/debian-dir.git) registered for path 'debian'
[...]

And that itself features another freaking layer of submodule:

anarcat@marcos:debian$ git submodule update --init
Submodule 'common' (git://git.debian.org/~srivasta/debian/debian-common.git) registered for path 'common'
Cloning into 'common'...

I think it should be considered to untangle this mess before uploading
this.

In care any one of those repos disappear, I have made local checkouts
here.
