[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,

Long description:
 meta-treedb can implement malloc functionality, and much more!
 Need a heap that allocates of a fixed size chunk of memory? No problem.
 But where treedb comes into its own is when it comes to allocating from a
 mmap()ed disk file - the memory becomes persistent.
 .
 If you follow the tests/examples, you too can store dictionaries, 
trees, lists
 or whatever you can think of in disk-based memory, just an open() and 
mmap()
 away.
 .
 Meta-treedb comes with an AVL tree, doubly-linked-list and
 variable-entry-sized-array implementations for you to use in your data
 structures.
 .
 So, what distinguishes meta-treedb from treedb?
 * "class" interfaces for treedb collections
 .  These are vtables (virtual function tables) that implement the 
interface.
 * faster compiles - only the "class" interfaces are visible to client code
 .  This is at the expense of a small performance hit.
 * the ability to use implementations that were developed after client 
code was
 .  compiled.
 .  This feature hasn't been fully fleshed out yet, as it would require a
 .  plug-in system such as that provided by v3c-dcom, but it's coming soon.

Subject: meta-treedb: changing back from ITP to RFP
Date: Mon, 27 May 2013 15:24:11 +0200
retitle 652429 RFP: meta-treedb -- on-disk memory library using meta-data

Hi,

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

 retitle 652429 ITP: meta-treedb -- on-disk memory library using meta-data
 owner 652429 !
 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 <652429@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
--
