  Hi,

  Did you do some progress on the packaging of libhugetlsfs ? If yes,
can you share your work ? If no, I plan to package it next week because
I need it at work. In this case, we can co-maintain this package if
you wish.

  Regards,
    Vincent

::libhugetlbfs::
Description: A library which provides access to huge pages of memory
 libhugetlbfs is a library which provides easy access to huge pages of
 memory. It is a wrapper for the hugetlbfs file system. Applications 
 can use huge pages to fulfill malloc() requests without being
 recompiled by using LD_PRELOAD. Alternatively, applications can be
 linked against libhugetlbfs without source modifications to load BSS
 or BSS, data, and text segments into large pages.

 This package contains a number of utilities that will help administrate
 the use of huge pages on your system.  hugeedit modifies binaries to
 set default segment remapping behavior. hugectl sets environment
 variables for using huge pages and then execs the target program.
 hugeadm gives easy access to huge page pool size control. pagesize
 lists page sizes available on the machine.

I'm willing to co-maintain : I (will) use this software at work and I have
already wrote and packaged library, so I can help you on this point.
  I already started a packaging. I did not yet look at yours but can you
tell me if you followed upstream and create bi-arch packages (ie amd64 has
a 64bits and 32bits version for example) or if you want to go through
the multi-arch path (I think it is a better long-term solution)

  Regards,
    Vincent

Thank you for volunteering to co-maintain this package.

As you probably already noticed, I used git for the packaging, which
repository is hosted on Alioth and managed "by collab-maint group". The
package itself is Debian source v3, using debhelper v7.

Let me know if you have different preferences.

Currently, I am forcing to build in native mode only. But as I
mentioned, C and libraries are a bit like Klingon to me. All your ideas
are welcome, feel free to implement them.

For communication, I like Jonas Smedegaard's idea to use
$packagename@packages.debian.org as a pseudo mailing list. I am not
often on IRC, but you can ping me there, and I'll come back to you
(within two or three days ;).  My nickname is... franklin

I am not always going to discuss very much of what I am doing and how I
am going to do it. I use VCS like a wiki: any change can be discussed,
improved or reverted. I usually tell about my TODO list by email (which
is currently up to date in the debian folder).

I have added you to the list of maintainers of the package.
We can maintain the package together (I am not "owning" the package in
any way).

Welcome on board,

Franklin

Subject: Any .debs ?
Date: Wed, 19 May 2010 14:31:13 +0100
I'm interested in trying libhugetlbfs out myself, and a search for a
Debianized version led here.

I did try 
  git-clone http://git.debian.org/?p=collab-maint/libhugetlbfs.git
but it fails with
  warning: remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout
(although since this is the first time I've ever tried to use git,
likely the fault is at my end) and the nearest git equivalents to "svn
export" seem to rely on first creating a local repository.

Do you have any .deb or .dsc available for download ?  I'm guessing it's
too much to hope for it to turn up in sid anytime soon while the focus
is on squeeze.

Thanks for any help
Tim

Hi,

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

 retitle 533708 ITP: libhugetlbfs -- Initial package request
 owner 533708 !
 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 <533708@bugs.debian.org>.

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