  Description     : Kurso de Esperanto - A multimedia program for teaching yourself Esperanto.

Esperanto is the most widely spoken constructed international
auxiliary language. It follows a few simple rules and is therefore
easy to learn.

Kurso de Esperanto helps you learning Esperanto in 12 lessons,
providing many pronunciation examples and different exercises.
There is even a tutoring service letting you correct the final
exercises of each lesson by a human tutor.

It first was only windows freeware. But was later ported to linux.
Currently the website also provides a .deb package. But it violates
many debian rules and has to be downloaded manually from the website.

I really like this program and would like to build a proper debian
package and getting it into debian. I already talked to the author
and convinced him to release the source as GPL.


Unfortunately it was build using kylix some years ago.
Kylix is not in debian and also no longer supported by borland.
According to the author porting to lazarus is not feasible and
a complete rewrite is planed using something like Qt.

For now I plan to pack a precompiled non-free version for i386 and amd64.
As packages like teamspeak-client are available in non-free, I hope
this package can be accepted, too.

Hi,

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

 retitle 572985 ITP: kurso -- Kurso de Esperanto - A multimedia program for teaching yourself Esperanto.
 owner 572985 !
 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 <572985@bugs.debian.org>.

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