Hi Alexander,

I am a Debian maintainer interested in sponsoring this package for
Debian. I have opened the ITP #652819 to followup on this work.

I see you have packaged the script as a PPA on Launchpad, that is a
great start!

https://launchpad.net/~alex-mieland/+archive/ppa

I have looked at the package, and I can think of a few improvements, and
I would like to discuss with you if you are open to those ideas.

 1. it could be interesting to automatically run (through Cron) the
 script on a regular basis
 2. we could use debconf prompts to ask the user for its identity
 3. we could create a sandbox so that the script doesn't run as root

What do you think?

Thanks for the package,

A.

Hello Antoine,

much thanks for your email. Unfortunatly I have not the time to manage the
ppa like I want. I have enough to do with other stuff around LiCo. ;)
If you have enough knowledge with bash scripting and ppa building, then you
may of course overtake the whole ppa thingy and manage it.

Your ideas are sounding very good. Would be nice to have that in.

Tell me what you would need from me and I'll do my best to give it to you.

Best regards,
Alexander Mieland

Hi,

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

 retitle 652819 ITP: lico-update -- Machine update script for The New Linux Counter Project
 owner 652819 !
 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 <652819@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
