Subject: RFH: link-grammar -- Carnegie Mellon University's link grammar parser for English
Date: Thu, 12 Nov 2009 21:20:00 -0600
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I either need help with this package to have a DD who can sponsor
uploads on a regular basis or I'll be forced to put link-grammar up
for adoption, becuase lacking a sponsor I haven't gotten a new version
into the archive in ages. (Despite the fact that I've been keeping it
fairly up to date on git.debian.org.)

The package is maintained in git at
git://git.debian.org/collab-maint/link-grammar.git (browsable at
http://git.debian.org/?p=collab-maint/link-grammar.git)

The package description is:
 In Selator, D. and Temperly, D. "Parsing English with a Link Grammar"
 (1991), the authors defined a new formal grammatical system called a
 "link grammar". A sequence of words is in the language of a link
 grammar if there is a way to draw "links" between words in such a way
 that the local requirements of each word are satisfied, the links do
 not cross, and the words form a connected graph. The authors encoded
 English grammar into such a system, and wrote this program to parse
 English using this grammar.
 .
 link-grammar can be used for linguistic parsing for information
 retrieval or extraction from natural language documents. It can also be
 used as a grammar checker.

Have you tried debian-mentors list? If I'm not missing - I've not seen
RFS of this package recently.

This is very good. Please prepare package, fix all current Lintian
stuffs, upload it somewhere (I prefer mentors.debian.net) point me to
.dsc - I'll take a look at it and get back to you.

This is very interesting, some of my friends may want to try it for
other languages - if it can be useful there..

I'm interested in helping to maintain the link-grammar source package.

I've done some preliminary work building 4.7.6 based on the very
helpful instructions in README.source (Thanks, Ken!); anyone
interested can view that work here:
https://bitbucket.org/seandst/link-grammar/src/cfd5a2589534/?at=debian/4.7.6-2

I'm hoping to get up to 4.7.7 later this week. I haven't read up on
the process in a little while, so any guidance on what needs to happen
now would be appreciated.
