Package: WNPP
 
LibreDWG is a C library for reading and writing files in the DWG CAD
format.

It is a free replacement for the OpenDWG libraries from the Open
Design Alliance.

DWG is the native format of AutoCAD and has become a defacto standard
for drawings and 3D models.

Hi - LibreCAD is working on DWG support with libreDWG, I just want to
check in on the status of this ITP.

The status of this is that I have working packaging for libredwg 0.4,
done back in September 2010. Then I got a little bogged down in
getting the library soname stuff just right (this is my first library
package and I didn't want to screw it up).

No doubt libreDWG has moved on greatly in the meantime so it all needs
updating. (hmm, but git pull tells me I am up to date in fact)

What I've done so far is available here:
http://wookware.org/software/libredwg
which at least makes it available for anyone else to move forward if
they so choose.

I will try to get back to this and finish it off. It really was nearly
done at the time IIRC, apart from some library handling issues. Looks
like last thing I did was add noinst_LTLIBRARIES to Makefile.am. I've
forgotten was that was all about...

Anyone else interested is very welcome to muck in as I have way more
jobs than time :-)

Hi,

A long time ago, you expressed interest in packaging libredwg. Unfortunately,
it seems that it did not happen. In Debian, we try not to keep ITP bugs open
for a too long time, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to
refrain from packaging the software.

This is an automatic email to change the status of libredwg back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 14 months.

If you are still interested in packaging libredwg, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 595191 ITP: libredwg -- C library for handling DWG CAD format
 owner 595191 !
 thanks

It is also a good idea to document your progress on this ITP from time to
time, by mailing <595191@bugs.debian.org>.  If you need guidance on how to
package this software, please reply to this email, and/or contact the
debian-mentors@lists.debian.org mailing list.

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