Subject: RFH: hotkey-setup -- auto-configures laptop hotkeys
Date: Tue, 27 May 2008 08:27:21 +0200
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

The hotkey-setup package is used to map special keys to key events,
which is required to get laptop keys to work properly.  I'm not sure
if it is still required, as I have seen some messages indicating that
a new framework is being worked on.  I lack the time to investigate,
and lack the heaps of laptops required to testing changes to the
package, and thus would very much like help in maintaining the
package.

<URL: http://packages.qa.debian.org/h/hotkey-setup.html >

There is a few changes in Ubuntu that should be reviewed and merged
into the Debian package, and 8 bugs in the BTS to look into.  If this
package is still needed, it should be updated for Lenny to make sure
the laptop support is as good as possible.  I was today informed that
some of the special keys on a Thinkpad X60 do not work, and suspect
hotkey-setup is to blame.

Please help.  I believe a version control repository should be set up
on collab-maint or a separate alioth project for group maintainence,
but have not had time to look into that either.

Happy hacking,

Hi Petter,

I'd be glad to help you maintaining hotkey-setup, mainly as I use this
package on my personal laptop.

I won't be able to do fix all issues or test anything more than for the
only laptop I own, but can already help fixing obvious bug, merging
patches, creating a collab-maint repository (git is ok for you?) etc.

Also note I am not a DD but DM, hence would need you review and upload
the package for me until you agree to add a DM-Upload-Allowed field.

Cheers,
Julien

Thanks for your work at making sure Debian has good hardware support.

The kernel is supposed to take care of making hotkeys emit the proper
codes these days.  I am already swamped so I will not be subscribing
to hotkey-setup through the PTS, but if someone complains of lack of
support for hotkeys (or finds themselves needing to install
hotkey-setup for any reason) then please feel free to redirect their
questions to me by cc-ing linux@packages.debian.org.

Thanks!

Hope that helps,
Jonathan

I guess it is time to remove this package from the archive.  I am not
able to maintain it, and I suspect it is completely obsolete.

Any objections?
