The only thing that comes to mind is that we don't like code duplication
in Debian much. That is, we like code to live in exactly one source
package. For this to work here, amule would have to provide an amule-src
package, and get amule-adunanza to build-depend on it, applying its diff
on top of it. (This way, if a security problem happens in amule, a
simple automatic binNMU is enough to get it fixed in amule-adunanza.)

I'm not sure, however, if it's worth the effort. After all we are
talking only of two packages (and foreseeably none more), and I don't
think there have been any security uploads of amule in the past.

Another option would be to include the adunanza diff in the amule
package itself, but I'm not very keen on that either.

Let's CC the security team, to see if they insist that we duplicate this
codebase, or can live with it.

I'm afraid I don't have time at the moment to sponsor this package. I'm
sorry. Good luck with finding another sponsor.

I hope you're okay with that.

The best solution would be to merge the necessary changes into amule
proper. Since there'll be 18 months of time until Squeeze release there
should be plenty of time to do that.

The second best solution would be to build another binary package from
the amule source package, which is applying the adunanza patch during
build time.

Or we could build a separate source package and exclude amule-adunanza
from security support.

Cheers,
        Moritz

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of amule-adunanza back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

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

 retitle 506251 ITP: amule-adunanza -- client for the eD2k and Kadu networks for for Fastweb clients
 owner 506251 !
 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 <506251@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
