Is this similar to "wader" (see ITP bug #492875)? If so, perhaps you
should make the upstreams work together.

As for the description in your ITP, it doesn't really tell me what it is
doing except that it has something to do with GPRS/3G. On the website,
there is a very clear description, you should use it as a basis for the
description of your package:

 Mobile Manager is a D-Bus service to control and use mobile data devices
 in Linux-based platforms. Mobile Manager provides a unified API to
 govern the following aspects of the GPRS/3G devices attached to the
 system:
 .
 * Plug & Play device support.
 * PIN/PUK management.
 * Device information and status.
 * Connection establishment and traffic monitoring. 

What is missing here is whether or not mobile-manager comes with a GUI component to
interact with the daemon.

...and how it can maybe interact with network-manager. There is not so much 
special about a GPRS/whatever device apart from the few AT chatting that 
handles PIN/PUK and the dial commands. The world was using pppd for that.
I vote for all three working together...

Hi all.

After reading your messages, I have to tell you that I will contact upstream
author to ask for integration with existing software.

I will also rewrite package description to make it more readable.

Regards,
Juanma.

Hi, Guus.

Thanks for your valuable information.

As I said before, my first task is rewriting the package information.

Certainly, it is just the daemon.

The piece of software that acts as GUI is called escritorio-movistar (ITP
#463967).

Juanma.

Hi,

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

 retitle 493697 ITP: mobile-manager -- mobile manager GPRS/3G daemon
 owner 493697 !
 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 <493697@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
