* Package name    : speedpad
  Version         : 1.0
  Upstream Author : John Feuerstein <john@feurix.com>

  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : ncurses tool to test, train, and increase typing speed

Speedpad is a small and portable, ncurses powered tool to test, train, and
increase typing speed on arbitrary text input:

 * designed for intermediate to advanced level typists
 * assumes that you have already learned how to touch type
 * no lessons, no single words, no synthetic stuff
 * tab expansion, auto indentation and syntax support to train on code
 * reference speed robot (defaults to 100 WPM)
 * supports CPS, CPM, WPM, PPM, and CPH/KPH metrics
 * shows detailed statistics about speed and typos
 * helps to find and eliminate frequent typos

Speedpad uses fortune(6) to generate quotes if no input is provided. It
dumps statistics to standard output in machine-readable format. This can
be used to visualize your progress using tools like gnuplot(1).

If you want to learn touch typing, have a look at gtypist(1) instead. If
you want to play typing games, have a look at tuxtype(1) and typespeed(1).

Hi,

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

 retitle 646059 ITP: speedpad -- ncurses tool to test, train, and increase typing speed
 owner 646059 !
 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 <646059@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
FYI I've packaged speedpad for Debian and filed the RFS following the then
documented procedure:
https://code.google.com/p/speedpad/source/browse/debian/?name=debian(debian
branch of the git repo)

Original RFS is still sitting on debian-mentors:
https://lists.debian.org/debian-mentors/2011/10/msg00424.html

Mentors dropped the package:
> Your package speedpad all versions has been removed from
mentors.debian.net for the following reason:
> Your package found no sponsor for 12 weeks

I've given up following up and searching for a sponsor. If there's still
interest, I'd prefer if we could use the upstream packaging.

Thanks.
