Subject: ITP: libglkterm - implementation of the glk API with ncurses support
Date: Mon, 16 Jun 2008 00:01:03 +0200
Package: wnpp
Version: 0.8.0-1

The glkterm library is an implementation of the glk API for terminals or
terminal emulators which uses the ncurses library. glk is a standard
which specifies an API for interpreters of Interactive Fiction (a.k.a.
Text Adventures). Such interpreters are programs that 'run' a game file
that contains the machine-readable representation of an interactive
story (Text Adventure). glk provides a clean API for all input and
output related tasks that such an interpreter has to accomplish, for
example reading text from the keyboard, printing text on the screen and
displaying a status bar. A prominent interpreter that uses glkterm is
glulxe.

I have drafted some Debian packages:
http://www.wolldingwacht.de/if/debian/libglkterm/

The purpose of packaging glkterm is making the glulxe interpreter run on
Debian. The corresponding drafts of Debian packages for glulxe are here:
http://www.wolldingwacht.de/if/debian/glulxe/

´╗┐IANADD, so I am looking for a DD as a sponsor.

The packages above are designed for 'Lenny'.

Hi Peer,

I have some interest for glulxe (see #338476 and its friends, where I
pretty much overdid the packaging), thanks for your effort in getting
it into Debian.

The packages look OK at first sight, but I'll take a closer look when
I have more time. Please consider using 'libglkterm-dev' instead of
'libglkterm0-dev' - even if there's going to be a new API version at
some point, there are so few packages using the library that having both
the old and the new -dev package installable at the same time is most
probably unnecessary.

I'll try to get back to you on this in a few days.

Hi,

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

 retitle 486410 ITP: libglkterm -- implementation of the glk API with ncurses support
 owner 486410 !
 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 <486410@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team
