Hi,

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

 retitle 570433 ITP: elexis -- medical practice managemant system for use in Switzerland
 owner 570433 !
 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 <570433@bugs.debian.org>.

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

Hi Lucas

Thanks for your work in Debian!

I have no objection to changing the state back to RFP as I really had no time 
to do clearly Debian related work for Elexis

I would like however to use this opportunity to clarify a little bit what I 
have done so far and which obstacles I encountered.

Elexis had no real project management till recently and the initiator and main 
programmer Gerry Weirich who also runs a GP practice was overwhelmed with 
work. But release management is surely not his strong points, eg. no clear 
tagging of releases in the Mercurial repository 
http://elexis.hg.sourceforge.net/hgweb/elexis/elexis-base

There is now a small swiss company www.medelexis.ch, which tries to sell 
support for this program.

I invested quite a few hours in 2010 and achieved quite a few points.
We switched from SVN to Mercurial. 
We added unit tests.
we brought the build system into a better shape for outside developers. 

I got also some few hours paid for a few extensions. As I feared that the 
increasing complexity and influx of extensions might lead to a collapse of the 
whole project (and also because of 95% of the user use non-free OS's) I 
focused even more on quality assurance and community building.

There is a new developer wiki available under http://wiki.medelexis.ch 
(registration necessary) where you can get more information (German only).

Eg. first developer meeting as of November 27/28th 2010
http://wiki.medelexis.ch/index.php/Entwicklertreffen_November_2010

I cleanup a quite a few missing copyright/license in all the source files.
I think I will easily get the missing copyright for most files. The following 
problems will persist:
elexis-utilities/src/ch/rgw/crypt/GnuPG.java is license under the GPL, which 
is problem linking with the LGPL (see also 
http://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnupg-devel/2002-February/018098.html)

http://jackcess.sourceforge.net/ mentions the LGPL for its version 1.2.2, but 
collides with
elexis-importer/src/com/healthmarketscience/jackcess/ImportUtil.java
which has no license remark.

Yesterday I got a paid contract (about 15h/month during 2011) to act as 
release manager. Therefore I try add a roadmap and some clear definitions for 
the various roles, see
http://wiki.medelexis.ch/index.php/Roadmap
http://wiki.medelexis.ch/index.php/Release-Manager

I don't think that I will try to bring Elexis into Debian before 3Q 2011.

As a sidenote: I know several GP who are running Debian on their server and 
they are a joy to administer.

I will try to push this idea even a bit further as I see marketing openening 
for simple, highly specialised and simply administerd (Debian) servers for 
this purpose. See https://github.com/ngiger/elexis-admin

Also Debian is the base OS for all my development work and it really rocks!

Best regards

Niklaus
