* Package name    : gens-gs
  Version         : Milestone 6
  Upstream Author : David Korth
* URL             : http://info.sonicretro.org/Gens/GS
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: C, C++, Assembly
  Description     : Sega Genesis / Sega CD / Sega 32X emulator

Gens/GS is an emulator for the Sega Genesis, Sega CD, and Sega 32X.

The source can be downloaded at
http://info.sonicretro.org/images/9/92/Gens-2.15.5-gs-m6.tar.gz.

Another note, there's already a 'debian' packaging directory in the source, and
they're calling the source package 'gens' instead of 'gens-gs'.

Hello,

I'm very interested in this package, what is the status of your ITP ?

Thanks in advance.

It is on hold at the moment.

Basically I am looking into licensing issues. Part of Gens/GS (starscream) seems
to be non-free.

Hi,

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

 retitle 533715 ITP: gens-gs -- Sega Genesis / Sega CD / Sega 32X emulator
 owner 533715 !
 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 <533715@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

Hello, I had a quick look at gens that I'd love to package for wheezy+1 too.

So, that's against DFSG #6, but nothing makes it undistributable in
non-free I believe.
