Subject: Orphaning nvidia-cg-toolkit and freeimage
Date: Fri, 11 Jun 2010 13:55:00 -0400
Hello Federico,

Were you planning on working on nvidia-cg-toolkit or freeimage anymore? I 
don't plan on working on those packages anymore and already delisted myself as 
a maintainer.

If you're not going to work on these packages anymore, then we should orphan

Subject: Cg 3.0 (July 2010) .deb packages available directly from Nvidia
Date: Sat, 31 Jul 2010 22:13:47 -0500
Cg now provides x86 and amd64 .deb packages, beginning with Cg 3.0 (July 2010)
The current release supersedes all previous releases and is fully backwards compatible.

It is recommended that Ubuntu incorporate or adapt these as a replacement.

 nvidia-cg-toolkit (3.1.0013-1) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Andreas Beckmann ]
   * Adopt package.  (Closes: #649514)
   * New Maintainer: Debian NVIDIA Maintainers.
   * New Uploaders: Miguel A. Colón Vélez, Russ Allbery, and myself.
   * Move packaging git repository to pkg-nvidia:
   * Acknowledge l10n NMUs.  (Closes: #610093)
   * Update Lintian overrides.
   * Review, reorder, and simplify the packaging.
   * Add XS-Autobuild: yes.
   * Use Breaks/Replaces: nvidia-cg-toolkit (<< ${source:Version}) to allow
     upgrades from old monolithic packages in Ubuntu and from NVIDIA.
   * Document a possible package build workflow in README.source.
   * Error out early if the .orig-*.tar.gz are not unpacked before build.
   [ Miguel A. Colón Vélez ]
   * New upstream release 3.1.0013 (April 2012).
     - Since release 2.1 the upstream license allows redistribution, so convert
       the packaging from an installer package (in contrib) to a set of
       packages: nvidia-cg-{toolkit,dev,doc}, libcg, libcggl (in non-free).
     (Closes: #506494, #539418, #502457, #639857)
   * Remove installer script, debconf translations and related dependencies.
   * nvidia-cg-toolkit.preinst: Run installer script in uninstallation mode
     before upgrade.
   * Convert package to 3.0 (quilt) format.
   * Add watch file, get-orig-source target, and README.source.
   * Use two pristine upstream tarballs (*.orig-{amd64,i386}.tar.gz) and an
     empty *.orig.tar.gz (via create-empty-orig in debian/source/options).
   * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.3.
   * Update copyright file as per DEP-5.
   * Bump debhelper to (>= 9) and compat version to 9.
   * Simplify the rules file by using the dh helper.
   * Change Section from contrib/libs to non-free/libs.
   * Update the README.Debian file and Homepage.
   * Add build dependencies for cginfo and cgfxcat.
   * Compile cginfo and cgfxcat instead of using the prebuilt binaries.
     - Ensure the hardened LDFLAGS are used.
     - Link cginfo and cgfxcat with --as-needed to reduce library footprint.
   * Don't strip the prebuilt binaries since stripping may violate the license
     (modifies binaries).
   * Use the manpages from version 3.0.0016 for the binaries in the
     nvidia-cg-toolkit package. They got removed upstream in version 3.1.0010 but
     are still included in the Cg Reference Manual.
     - Fix a spelling error in cgc.1 (compatable -> compatible).
   * Add multiarch support.
   * Create the libcg and libcggl packages.
     - Unfortunately upstream provides libraries with an unversioned SONAME.
     - Use Multi-Arch: same.
     - Breaks/Replaces old nvidia-cg-toolkit and libcg.
     - Create the libcg.symbols and libcggl.symbols files.
     - Create *.postinst/*.postrm according to Debian policy 8.1.1.
   * Create the nvidia-cg-dev package.
     - Use Multi-Arch: same.
     - Depend on the new libcg and libcggl packages.
     - Breaks/Replaces old nvidia-cg-toolkit.
   * Create the nvidia-cg-doc package.
     - Breaks/Replaces old nvidia-cg-toolkit.
     - Don't compress the examples (Makefile, *.h, *.c, *.cpp, *.cg).
     - Don't include the license.pdf/license.txt files since a verbatim copy is
       included in the copyright file.
     - Don't include the Microsoft Visual Studio files.
     - Don't include architecture dependent files. These files can be
       recompiled by the user since the sources are included.
   * Package nvidia-cg-toolkit:
     - Change Section to non-free/devel.
     - Depend on the new libcg, libcggl and nvidia-cg-dev packages.
     - Suggest the newly created nvidia-cg-doc package.
     - Update description using the latest information from the Nvidia website.
   * {libcg,nvidia-cg-doc}.postinst: Manually remove /usr/lib/ and
     /usr/lib/ Due to the removal of the /usr/lib64 symlink, the
     installer script does not remove these files.
   [ Russ Allbery ]
   * Add DM-Upload-Allowed: yes.
