  Description     : firmware loader for cameras based on Ricoh R5U87x chipsets

This package contains a firmware loader for cameras based on Ricoh R5U87x
chipsets that are UVC (USB video class) compliant.

Please note that the firmware itself is not included because of its unclear
copyright and license status. The package contains a script that helps users
download the necessary firmware from the upstream repository if they wish.
The script is located at /usr/share/r5u87x/r5u87x-download-firmware.sh .

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "r5u87x".

* Package name    : r5u87x
  Version         : 0.2.1+r63+dfsg1-1
  Upstream Author : Alexander Hixon <alex@alexhixon.com>
* URL             : http://www.bitbucket.org/ahixon/r5u87x/
* License         : GPL-2+
  Section         : contrib/misc

It builds these binary packages:
r5u87x     - firmware loader for cameras based on Ricoh R5U87x chipsets

The package appears to be lintian clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 563081

My motivation for maintaining this package:
This firmware loader is currently the only way to make cameras based on 
Ricoh R5U87x chipsets work under Linux. These cameras are used on 
several Sony Vaio, HP Pavilion and Fujitsu Lifebook laptops. An RFP has 
been open on Launchpad for more than two and a half years 
(https://launchpad.net/bugs/120434).

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/contrib/r/r5u87x
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable 
main contrib non-free
- dget 
http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/contrib/r/r5u87x/r5u87x_0.2.1+r63+dfsg1-1.dsc

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
Please CC me if you reply on-list.

Best regards,

David Jurenka

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of r5u87x 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 r5u87x, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 563081 ITP: r5u87x -- firmware loader for cameras based on Ricoh R5U87x chipsets
 owner 563081 !
 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 <563081@bugs.debian.org>.

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