What are the advantages of this one WRT the original project [1]?  Is
there any chance that development on the original project will continue?
In this case, I would say that the fork should not be packaged with the
original name.

     ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Do you mind maintaining your package under the pkg-fso umbrella [2],
which is the team behind any Debian effort for Openmoko devices?

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca

I am sorry Luca that I have missed your email. Looking at it now I
realize that it came at the hottest time -- I was about to submit my
PhD dissertation, so my mind was fully occupied with other things ;)

original project is dead (or at least stale for quite a while) as
far I can see that.

besides a variety of cosmetic/UI changes, this fork brings
gstreamer backend which might be a preferable one for FR (hence it is
the default one iirc)

> there any chance that development on the original project will continue?
there is always some degree of chance for anything. 
But I can probably say that it is very unlikely
If it does continue, I don't see any reason why our fork should not be
considered for merge ;)

yeah -- I had such doubts as well; but atm there is no original pythm
development, and not sure if it would ever come back.

There is though another fork by Paul TT. We adopted some of his changes
(GUI) but not all.

To summarize -- I would stick with pythm name until original author does
not come up and claim his trademark ;)

not at all... and actually that is what I was asking for in the other
recent email. I will apply for membership within pkg-fso on alioth, so I
could upload.

Cheers

Hi,

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

 retitle 518494 ITP: pythm -- media players (e.g. mpd, gstreamer, mplayer) GUI frontend
 owner 518494 !
 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 <518494@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
