I intend to orphan the python-uniconvertor package.

I no longer use this package, and I have not spent any time on it for
the past year.  If there is anyone who would like to take over its
maintenance, feel free to claim it.

 UniConvertor is a multiplatform universal vector graphics translator.
 It uses sK1 engine to convert one format to another.

Andreas,

I wold like to become a Debian Mantainer, and I do use this tool.

How can I help? I used to work building Debian-based distros, so I already
know how to create and build debian packages.

Cheers,

Hello Ronoaldo,

I just saw your question in #644559. The process of adopting a package
is outlined in [1].

The python-uniconvertor package has the Debian Python Modules
Packaging Team in it's Maintainer field so it might be a good idea to
join the team [2]. This might also give you a better chance to find a
sponsor (a Debian Developer who uploads the package for you).

I have some interest in python-uniconvertor (>= 1.1.5) because my wife
got an embroidery machine that uses the Brother PES format supported
by this version. Feel free to ask me for review/sponsorship in IRC
(nick jandd in #debian-python on OFTC) or via mail.

Kind regards
Jan

Ronoaldo,

  Do you still have interest in python-uniconvertor ? Apparently
updating to 1.1.5 is somewhat difficult since it now needs a new
dependency:

Thanks.

Forgot to cc this bug report and interested people when sending a followup
to #699301 and #592840 (cc'ed now).

http://bugs.debian.org/699301
http://bugs.debian.org/592840

The short story, I have been playing on building a 1.1.5 python-uniconvertor
package together with a new package python-sk1libs, the new dependency.
I did a minimal testing and resulting package seems to work, but this is my
first approach to python and everything I did needs extensive reviewing by
someone fluent with python, long story in above bug reports.

I do not intend to adopt this package, so you may be interested in my
changes in

http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=users/agmartin/TMP/python-sk1libs.git;a=summary
http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=users/agmartin/TMP/python-uniconvertor.git;a=summary

Note that python-modules team seems to have SVN as preferred VCS (fix me if 
this is no longer true)

Hope this helps.
