Why such a package name? It's neither the upstream name 
(sphinxcontrib-aafig) nor policy-compliant[0] name for the binary 
package (python-sphinxcontrib-aafig).

>* URL             : http://pypi.python.org/sphinxcontrib-aafig/

I think you meant: http://packages.python.org/sphinxcontrib-aafig/

>* License         : BOLA

This is not a good license[1]. Please tell upstream to use something 
sane, e.g. the Expat license[2].

>  Description     : Embedded ASCII art figures in Sphinx documentations

sphinxcontrib-aafig would depend on aafigure, which is currently 
orphaned. Please consider adopting it.

Done.

Yep that's the one I put in the control file, sorry.

Asked, but upstream does not seem to agree with Gunnar statements...
More over this license was discussed back in 2006 [1,2] on
debial-legal and was said dfsg compliant. It is also mentioned in
other places like [3], but is not either in the free or non-free list
found at [4].

I might, if we can agree on the license problem. And then I am still
looking for a sponsor

Hi Nicolas,

what's the status of this ITP?  Do you have a preliminary package
somewhere?

Thanks,
Julien

Nevermind, found it in the python-modules svn.  One question though: is
there a particular reason you put the packaging under GPL-3, as opposed
to a permissive license similar to the one used by upstream?

Cheers,
Julien

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of python-sphinx-aafig back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting python-sphinx-aafig, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 629278 ITP: python-sphinx-aafig -- Embedded ASCII art figures in Sphinx documentations
 owner 629278 !
 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 <629278@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
