Subject: RFA: lyx -- document processor
Date: Tue, 19 Jul 2011 22:23:04 +0200
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal


We request an adopter for the lyx package. Both of us (pelle@ and hoexter@)
no longer use lyx so we would like to hand it over.

The package is currently in a good shape and most bugs are handled.
Upstream is very nice and responsive and I'm still around to help
if required. The package is maintained on git.d.o with git-buildpackage,
pristine-tar and in 3.0 quilt source format. You can find some of the
relevant links on http://wiki.debian.org/PkgLyx

Please not that you should dvipost along with lyx since it's solely used
with lyx afaik. elyxer, which is also in the pkg-lyx repository can be
taken aswell but I'll offer to keep that for some time.

The package description is:
 LyX is an almost WYSIWYG-frontend for LaTeX. It makes the power and
 typesetting quality of LaTeX available for people who are used to
 word processors. Since LyX supports LaTeX's concept of general
 mark-ups, it is even easier and faster to create professional quality
 documents with it than with usual word processors. It is also
 possible to use LaTeX commands within LyX, so nothing of LaTeX's
 power is lost.
 .
 You can extend the functionality of LyX by installing these packages:
  * chktex: check for typographical errors
  * dvipost: display tracked changes in DVI format output
  * gnuhtml2latex: import HTML documents
  * groff: improved table formatting in plain text exports
  * librsvg2-bin, inkscape: use the SVG image format in LyX documents
  * linuxdoc-tools: export SGML LinuxDoc documents
  * mythes-*: use the OpenOffice.org/LibreOffice Thesaurus
  * noweb: import noweb files
  * rcs: integrated version control
  * sgmltools-lite: export SGML DocBook documents
  * wv: import MS Word documents

Hello there,

Do you still need someone to adopt the lyx package?

I could try and help for some time and see if I could possibly adopt
it eventually since it is a package that I use quite much.
If this is OK, I could start by looking on the (quite many) bugs filed
against the package to prepare an updated version

Best regards,
Nick

Hi,

I am also interested in adopting the LyX package, and I use it regularly 
for work at the University.

I see that Nick Andrik also showed interest. Maybe the package is big 
enough to justify two people working on it? I would be glad to be able 
to help.

Best regards,

Alexis

Lyx 2.0.5.1 released January 2013

How about it? Why lyx still listed as non-adopted?

the xdg-prefer patch has some fuzz when applied to this version, 
otherwise mostly good. Only minor change to rules needed to compile.  Thus:

# remove empty directory
#pj 2013-01-18  rmdir debian/lyx-common/usr/share/lyx/images/commands

Seemed silly to patch a patch, so I just re-did the changes and made a 
new attached patch.

I'm not a registered Debian maintainer, so I can't take care of this 
now. Are any of you registered to take care of it?

I have prepared a new package of lyx with the most recent upstream
which can be found in my PPA in launchpad:
https://launchpad.net/~andrikos/+archive/ppa/+packages

Apart from that, the package needs a bit of cleanup to get rid of all
the filed bugs.
I don't think I will have the time to fully adopt the package, but I
would be wiling to co-maintain.
If we are 2-3 people, then it should be hardly any burden at all.

I am not a DD, but I have someone that can sponsor uploads.

Nick

Hi guys,
Liviu Andronic just made me aware of several people who would like
to adopt the LyX package. I'll now CC everyone whom I see as interested
because you've fallen in a little trap of the BTS. You just wrote
to the RFA bug report but did not post on the pkg-lyx-devel mailinglist
or otherwise pinged the former maintainer. We don't read the bugreport
and I for one am not subscribed to the bug itself. Since the RFA bug is
filled against the wnpp pseudo package we don't receive your mails.

So here is the beef:
Most infrastructure information has been collected in the Debian Wiki
http://wiki.debian.org/PkgLyx

You can start just from there and clone the repo and maybe start
to send patches/pull requests to the mailinglist.

If you've some history within Debian that shows that you know a few
basics about Debian package building it's of course possible to add
you to the project so you can commit to the central git repo. You've to
create a alioth guest account for that on http://alioth.debian.org.


Even if I didn't work on LyX in the last years I'm still willing to
sponsor uploads and help with questions about the packaging.


Please direct any further questions to the pkg-lyx-devel mailinglist
and and join the list.


Cheers,
Sven

I already have a packaged version in my PPA:
https://launchpad.net/~andrikos/+archive/ppa/+sourcepub/3022134/+listing-archive-extra

If you want I can build a patch against the tree (we just need to
update a patch and a small thing in debian/rules)
