Hi Gurkan,

 I would be *very* interested if you could officially package splash for debian 
and/or ubuntu. You may have noticed I have splash in Macports already (though this 
is currently the stable 1.x package, not using giza), so it would be great to have 
something similar for linux.

There are two issues with "unbundling" the tarball:
- splash assumes that giza is in a subdirectory, so you would need to separately 
place giza in the correct subdirectory. This assumption could be easily changed 
but it is what is currently in the Makefile.
- it is not (yet) guaranteed that a given version of splash (e.g. 2.0 beta) will 
work with a later version of giza (e.g. taken from sourceforge), so you would need 
to make sure the versions line up. You can be guaranteed that the latest svn copy 
of splash should always work with the latest svn copy of giza (I develop both in 
tandem with each other, adding features to giza as I need them in splash), but 
this will not be true if you mix the splash tarball and an arbitrary giza version. 
The main issue here is that the giza API is not yet stable, so later versions of 
giza may not be backwards compatible with earlier versions (furthermore I will not 
declare the API stable or attempt to retain backwards compatibility until I have 
at least reached v1.0 of giza). As giza becomes more stable this should become 
less of an issue in future.

So, I'm happy to provide a standalone tarball of splash:

http://users.monash.edu.au/~dprice/splash/releases/splash-2.0-beta-nogiza.tar.gz

MD5 (splash-2.0-beta-nogiza.tar.gz) = baa8a938869e802e1a6735e1880c8ab6
SHA1(splash-2.0-beta-nogiza.tar.gz)= 1f3c9d14557d41466129b270d57da92e480eb149
RIPEMD160(splash-2.0-beta-nogiza.tar.gz)= 7fb6c6b39c0448f5f2ff9430edd92d450221935f

...but you should beware of the above points.

Hi,

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

 retitle 649602 ITP: giza -- lightweight scientific plotting library
 owner 649602 !
 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 <649602@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
