  Description     : MDic is a multilingual dictionary for GNU/Linux operating systems.

The following longer description is taken from MDic's Wikipedia page
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MDic). It should be noted that by default
no dictionaties are included.

-----
MDic is a multilingual free dictionary software developed for the Linux
operating system. It scans selected (or highlighted) text in any program
(a texteditor or in an address bar) and pops up to show the result
automatically or by pressing a modifier key (depending on settings).

MDic is able to pronounce the words by default if the ESpeak or KDE
text-to-speech tool is installed.

MDic uses SQLite databases and there is a converter tool (mdicconv)
which can convert Babylon(.bgl), Stardict (.ifo), Freedict(.tei) and
Sdictionary dictionaries (.dct).

The only pre-requirements to use MDic is the Qt4 library.

MDic can be used on any Desktop environment or window manager.

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "mdic".

* Package name    : mdic
  Version         : 0.6.1-1
  Upstream Author : Majid Ramezanpour <thinkgnu@gmail.com>, Mehrdad
Momeny <mehrdad.momeny@gmail.com>

* URL             : http://mdic.sourceforge.net/
* License         : GPL-3
  Section         : utils


It builds these binary packages:
mdic -  Multilingual Dictionary for GNU/Linux

The package appears to be lintian clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 495869

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:

- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/m/mdic
<http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/s/smartdimmer>
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free

http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/m/mdic/mdic_0.6.1-1.dsc

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.


Kind regards
 David Cordero

thanks

Hi,

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

 retitle 495869 ITP: mdic -- MDic is a multilingual dictionary for GNU/Linux
 owner 495869 !
 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 <495869@bugs.debian.org>.

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