[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Philip,

you probably didn't see the message
<20111214130827.GA19514@fishbowl.rw.madduck.net>. I have an issue
with your ITPs, because your short descriptions are pretty
meaningless ("baby steps to DCOM") and you provided no long
descriptions in the bug reports you filed to announce your ITPs.

Please make sure that the packages you are about to create have
meaningful short and long descriptions, which enable an interested
user to get a good grasp of what s/he is looking at.

Also, in the future, please put the same amount of care into the
ITPs from the start.

Cheers,

Subject: v3c: changing back from ITP to RFP

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of v3c 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 v3c, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 652423 ITP: v3c -- C/C++/sh/make/automake/Debian utility toolkit
 owner 652423 !
 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 <652423@bugs.debian.org>.

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

Hi there.

I'll just comment on this package as it's the first of v3c, cxxparse,
treedb, meta-treedb, v3c-dcom, v3c-qt, v3c-qt-examples.
I don't have any packages in Debian,although my SourceForge packagescan
build them - for Ubuntu too.

Because of that I filed ITPs instead of RFPs because I though that
"intent to package" meant that I intended to make Debian packages (which
is true, and I succeeded), but now I know that it means that someone in
Debian who is authorized to do so intends to add them to Debian
repositories, my bad.

Anyway, they're still in SourceForge and being actively developed.

I got some bad feedback that "upstream" shouldn't contain a "debian"
folder because that's for the packager.

Since most if not all the files in that folder are generated I don'tsee
what the fuss is but if that's the only obstacle to getting my packages
into Debian is to remove them and add them back in then I'm sure the
uploader can write a diff or patchto do that easily.

My SourceForge packages can build Debian packages as they stand.

Regards,
Philip Ashmore
