Description: a C++ wrapper for the Simple DirectMedia Layer
 SDLmm is a C++ glue for SDL, or the Simple DirectMedia Layer,
 which is a generic API that provides low level access to audio,
 keyboard, mouse, joystick, 3D hardware via OpenGL, and 2D framebuffer
 across multiple platforms.
 .
 SDLmm aims to stay as close as possible to the C API while taking
 advantage of native C++ features like object orientation.
 It also aims at being platform independent as much as possible.

Hi,

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

 retitle 523558 ITP: sdlmm -- a C++ wrapper for the Simple DirectMedia Layer
 owner 523558 !
 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 <523558@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

Hello Barry, all,

Is there still interest in packaging this library for Debian (SDL
wrapper for C++ ).  There's some work done in SVN by Barry, but it was
never actually uploaded -- why?

The project seems stangnant/dead upstream, and there are other
projects providing C++ wrappers or similar (sdllucid and sdlpp in
sourceforge, probably others).

At this point, is the only thing remaining in SVN instead of Git.  I
can just move it and leave it alone, but I thought that it would be
better to ask in the case, so maybe somebody actually goes ahead and
uploads a package; or prefers to not have our repository cluttered
with packages not uploaded.

It serves also as a ping for the WNPP bug.


Cheers.

Hi Manuel,

I was working on it as a build-dep for some package but I will be damned if I can remember why since
I have been out of the loop for so long


If you don't get any response back from anyone else I would say just drop it.

Thanks!

Barry

So a few months later, I will drop it now.

Upstream seems dead since many years ago, with unanswered requests
from people wanting to take over.  SDL2 is supposed to be released
really soon now, so with time this software will be less and less
useful.

In any case, if this project or a similar one is revived and useful to
people, we can package it at that time, no need to keep this bug open.


Cheers and thanks.
