* Package name    : fieldtrip
  Version         : 0.20101101
  Upstream Author : Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour
* URL             : http://fieldtrip.fcdonders.nl
* License         : GPL-2+
  Programming Lang: Matlab/Octave
  Description     : toolbox for MEG and EEG analysis
 The software includes algorithms for simple and advanced analysis of MEG and
 EEG data, such as time-frequency analysis, source reconstruction using dipoles,
 distributed sources and beamformers and non-parametric statistical testing. It
 supports the data formats of all major MEG systems (CTF, Neuromag, BTi) and of
 the most popular EEG systems, and new formats can be added easily. FieldTrip
 contains high-level functions that you can use to construct your own analysis
 protocols in Matlab. Furthermore, it easily allows developers to incorporate
 low-level algorithms for new EEG/MEG analysis methods.


This software is distributed as a Matlab toolbox. However, the NIMH
distributes a “port” of fieldtrip to Octave (at
http://kurage.nimh.nih.gov/meglab/Meg/Software). It needs to be figured
out who did that, whether this port can be incorporated into the
official version, and to what degree it is complete.

Packaging fieldtrip is required to complete the packaging of SPM8
(#592390).

According to some feedback on the fieldtrip mailing list it should work
quite well with Octave 3.2 already. However, there is no regular
testing/migration effort regarding Octave-compatibility of the
fieldtrip authors themselves.

The main obstacle for packaging right now is the lack of a build-system
to build MEX extensions for Octave and Matlab. The maintainer will
discuss this issue with the authors over the next couple of days.

thanks

Hi,

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

 retitle 605492 ITP: fieldtrip -- toolbox for MEG and EEG analysis
 owner 605492 !
 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 <605492@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
