* Package name    : freewrl
  Version         : 1.22.5
  Upstream Author : John Stewart, Sarah Dumoulin  ... <info-freewrl --at-- crc.ca>
* URL             : http://freewrl.sourceforge.net

  Description     : VRML browser for 3D contents works also as mozilla plugin

 Player aims to be fully VRML97 compliant, complete with scripting in Perl, Java and Javascript, and EAI
 .
 It is written mostly in Perl with some C for library interfaces & rendering,
 and uses OpenGL (Mesa) for graphics.

=== Notes : ===

  * that vrml viewer was in debian long time ago but went away... 

  * upstream is still active , and many efforts are done 
    by my friend Michel of myosotis project
    to made it available to debian/ubuntu users also  ...

So I am trying to help and hope we (co-maintainers) can get it back 
into debian's main and ubuntu as well

  * I just set up a git repo on debian's alioth
   (pkg-multimedia team which IMHO fits best)
   , imported previous version and working on an current release...

  * Currently (20100320) latest release builds and runs on most arch ...


Sponsoring, co-maintenance, or testing will be appreciated.

Cool.
Please file a bug against octave-vrml, once freewrl is again available.

Thanks

Just wondering, considering the current move *away* from VRML with new
standards like WebGL, is there a compelling reason to add yet another
VRML browser ?

Is there a good and working VRML browser in Debian?  What is the
package name?  I have been looking for one to look at and transform my
VRML files.  I would love one that could convert to STL format for
processing by 3D printer tools.

There are heaps of VRML files around, and I would love to have the
tools to process them in Debian.

Happy hacking,

Hi,

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

 retitle 574881 ITP: freewrl -- VRML browser for 3D contents works also as mozilla plugin
 owner 574881 !
 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 <574881@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
--
