Hi,

since javascript packages are named libjs-foo in debian (e.g. see those
under the pkg-javascript umbrella), please remember to name your binary
package libjs-mozilla. since jslib is really too generic, you may want
to consider to also name the source package libjs-mozilla.

Regards,
Daniel

Unfortunately I had already uploaded the package, so it is in the new
queue now. I am not sure if it is possible to replace it, maybe asking
to the ftp-mangers.

For the record jslib is the name chosen by the upstream developers,
and I named the binary package "mozilla-jslib", coherently with the
other mozilla plugin packages. Honestly I don't think it is to harmful
to have a Debian source package named "jslib", after all it matches
the upstream name of the Mozilla's plugin site, so people will know it
is exactly that one. Also the name of the binary package is compliant
with the naming schema adopted by the mozilla plugin packages.

However if you think this should absolutely be changed, please let me
know, I will try to do that before it gets out the new queue.

Ciao!

Free

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of jslib back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

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

 retitle 508185 ITP: jslib -- Iceweasel/Firefox javaScript library
 owner 508185 !
 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 <508185@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
--
