  Description     : tools for debugging OpenGL applications and drivers

apitrace is a suite of tools for debugging OpenGL applications and drivers.
It includes a tool to generate a trace of all the OpenGL calls an applicaton
makes and a tool for replaying these traces and inspecting the rendering and
OpenGL state during the program's execution.
.
This makes it useful for identifying the sources of graphical corruption in
OpenGL applications.

sounds very interesting. But I wonder if the name could be a bit more
specific, like opengl-trace or graphics-api-trace, as it does not seem
to trace arbitrary APIs.

Currently I see:
| Source: apitrace
| Package: apitrace-gl-tracer
| Package: apitrace-gl-retracer

does that look OK enough?

I’d probably have chosen the Source name to also include GL, but thats
almost bikeshedding, so OK from my POV.

Hi,

Whats the status of this ITP? It would be great for the games team and
upstream developers if this were added to Debian.

It's been mostly done a couple of times in pkg-xorg git.

I've recently updated it to a recent snapshot; it's now waiting for me to finish a patch making it work sensibly in the presence of multiarch, then I'll hunt for a sponsor. 

I anticipate that this should be done this week.

Hi,

It's been more than half a year now - any updates on this? Any way to help?

Kind regards

Hi,


I'd wish to see this utility on Debian.

This ITP has been open for more than 2 years already and the last update
from the bug owner was more than one year ago.


Christopher, is there any progress on this?


If you are not longer interested or you don't have time for packaging
apitrace on Debian, please retitle this bug to RFP so this package work
can be taken by anyone interested and/or with time available.


Thanks!

Hi!

It's been in an uploadable condition a couple of times over the last 
couple of years, but the DDs on the Debian X team have always been too 
busy to sponsor at those times (and I've never quite got around to 
apply for DD).

I'll give it another update in git; a couple of the other Debian X guys 
are close to DD status, so the bandwidth for uploading should be better 
soon :)

Hi,


I think is easier to find a sponsor for your packages if you follow the
documented procedure for RFS http://mentors.debian.net/sponsor/rfs-howto
or you ask for it directly on the debian-mentors mailing list.

Is also a good idea to include this bug in the CC, so people looking at
this ITP like me can know that you are already actively looking for an
sponsor.


Thanks for the update.
