the package for the Yahoo! User Interface toolkit is called libyui-js 
which is bound to cause confusion.  Can you rename yours to maybe 
libyastui or something?

This library looks very cool and is the first time I've heard about it :)


Are you planning to package also the python bindings?

I think it's cool, too.
Are you a DD? Would you like to sponsor it?

> Are you planning to package also the python bindings?

For sure, when the main pkg is done. I'll pkg the qt, gtk+ and ncurses
plugins and after that the other avail bindings (python and ruby are
available yet, I think) of course.

another nice technical resource and a 'must read' if you want to
get to know more about it.

Hi,

A long time ago, you expressed interest in packaging libyui. Unfortunately,
it seems that it did not happen. In Debian, we try not to keep ITP bugs open
for a too long time, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to
refrain from packaging the software.

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

 retitle 651093 ITP: libyui -- Qt, GTK+ and ncurses UI-Engine
 owner 651093 !
 thanks

It is also a good idea to document your progress on this ITP from time to
time, by mailing <651093@bugs.debian.org>.  If you need guidance on how to
package this software, please reply to this email, and/or contact the
debian-mentors@lists.debian.org mailing list.

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