I would suggest duplicating libopenfst's description, then add that this
is python binding, like:

----
OpenFst is a library for constructing, combining, optimizing, and 
searching weighted finite-state transducers (FSTs). Weighted 
finite-state transducers are automata where each transition has an input
label, an output label, and a weight. The more familiar finite-state 
acceptor is represented as a transducer with each transition's input and
output label equal. Finite-state acceptors are used to represent sets of
strings (specifically, regular or rational sets); finite-state 
transducers are used to represent binary relations between pairs of 
strings (specifically, rational transductions). The weights can be used 
to represent the cost of taking a particular transition.

This package (known upstream as PyOpenFST), contains the python
bindings.
----

Regards,

Franklin

I don't see any reason to deviate from the upstream name. (Python Policy 
2.2 does not apply here, as it doesn't talk about source package names.)

Agreed, thanks for your feedback.

I suppose that the source will be named "pyopenfst", and the binary
will be named "python-openfst".
That's why I have included "(known upstream as PyOpenFST)" in the
description, so people doing "aptitude search pyopenfst" find it.

Hi,

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

 retitle 579401 ITP: pyopenfst -- Python bindings for the OpenFst library
 owner 579401 !
 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 <579401@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

This package was blocked by an upstream copyright problem, there was no
license defined and the copyright holder wasn't named.

Today I found the license specified as Apache License 2.0 on the project
home page, http://code.google.com/p/pyopenfst/

There is also a commit history there, pointing to "tmbdev@gmail.com" as
project owner and "dhdfoo@gmail.com" as the only other committer. If
there is somebody interested in packaging this, one could write to these
addresses, and ask for names/pseudonyms to be used.

Hi,

and thank you for your work on pyopenfst!

Debian maintainers and contributors would really like to package
pyopenfst for Debian, but unfortunately, there doesn't seem enough
copyright and license information available to fulfil Debian
guidelines. 

pyopenfst's project homepage on Google Code states that the code is
licensed under the Apache License 2.0, and we've found your email
addresses in the list of committers, but please help us by stating
copyright and license information clearly by adding a note to the code. 

There's an appendix to the Apache License 2.0 on how to do it:
http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0#apply

Also see http://code.google.com/p/pyopenfst/issues/detail?id=6
and http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=579401 

Kind regards
Bernhard Reiter
