Hi Kartik,

You currently own the NewsBlur ITP for Debian
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=647712). Is there
perhaps something I can help out with? I'm also interested in getting
NewsBlur packaged.

Thanks!

Jelmer

Just to keep the bug informed. NewsBlur has a bunch of
dependencies that aren't strictly necessary and mainly useful because
of the way in which upstream does their hosting. Two of these are raven and
seacucumber, but there are a couple more.

Unfortunately it looks like upstream isn't interested in carrying
these. See:

https://github.com/samuelclay/NewsBlur/pull/398#issuecomment-24201362

There are also a couple of libraries that are shipped with NewsBlur
that are also present in Debian itself.

I've uploaded the beginnings of a package to
git://git.debian.org/users/jelmer/newsblur.git

I've given up on this for the moment considering the number of
dependencies that are not packaged in Debian yet.

Cheers,

Jelmer
