* Package name    : fisicalab.app
  Version         : 0.1
  Upstream Author : German A. Arias <german@xelalug.org>
* URL or Web page : http://fisicalab.nongnu.org/
* License         : GPLv3+
  Programming Lang: Objective-C
  Description     : Educational Physics application for GNUstep

FísicaLab is an educational application to solve Physics problems.
There is a predefined pallette with elements (blocks, pulleys,
mobiles, forces), which can be added to a "chalkboard", with
user-defined data.

It currently supports the following kinds of Physics problems::

   * Kinematics of particles (without circular motion)
   * Statics of particles (2D only)
   * Dynamics of particles (2d only, no dynamic or circular motion)


* * *
I can do the initial packaging and maintain it in long term, provided
that knowledgeable people confirm this app would be actually useful in
Debian.  It looks interesting, although I can't judge about the
usefulness properly (my love with Physics was eons ago).  There are
some minor bugs, easily fixable.  Upstream was very active until some
months ago in the GNUstep community, although there were no further
releases.  All classes and variables are in Spanish :-( (no problem
for the end user, only for the Debian maintainer, eventually).

Hi,

A long time ago, you expressed interest in packaging fisicalab.app. Unfortunately,
it seems that it did not happen. In Debian, we try not to keep ITP bugs open
for a too long time, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to
refrain from packaging the software.

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

 retitle 550231 ITP: fisicalab.app -- Educational Physics application for GNUstep
 owner 550231 !
 thanks

It is also a good idea to document your progress on this ITP from time to
time, by mailing <550231@bugs.debian.org>.  If you need guidance on how to
package this software, please reply to this email, and/or contact the
debian-mentors@lists.debian.org mailing list.

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