Subject: RFS: phpvirtualbox-4.1
Date: Mon, 06 Feb 2012 23:12:03 +0100
Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: minor

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "phpvirtualbox-4.1". I use the
package on my own on a headless server. It connects to vbox via it's soap
interface.
The virtualbox instance itself does not need to run on the same server as this
package is running on. So there is no direct dependency to the virtualbox
package in debian.
Because debian is often used on servers, I think this package is worth to be
easily distributed to other users, too.

RFS for phpvirtualbox-4.0 has been delayed due to discussion:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2012/02/msg00172.html

 * Package name    : phpvirtualbox-4.1
   Version         : 7-1
   Upstream Author : Ian Moore (imoore76@yahoo.com)
 * URL             : http://code.google.com/p/phpvirtualbox/downloads/list
 * License         : GPLv3
   Section         : admin

It builds those binary packages:

phpvirtualbox-4.1 - web based interface for administering virtualbox

To access further information about this package, please visit the following
URL:

  http://mentors.debian.net/package/phpvirtualbox-4.1

Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command:

  dget -x
http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/p/phpvirtualbox-4.1/phpvirtualbox-4.1_7-1.dsc

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

Kind regards,

Marcus Osdoba

please get in touch with Debian's Virtualbox maintainers. They might
consider sponsoring you.

Thanks Arno.

I tried that some days ago, but didn't get an answer (but a week is not 
that long).
Unfortuantly, I cannot find a link to the mailinglist archive for 
pkg-virtualbox-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org

Anyway, here is what I've written on January 30th:
"
Hello Debian vb team,

I have started debianizing phpvirtualbox [0] for my own needs and hope 
this is the right place to bring it up.
Please guide me if I'm wrong.

I use it on a headless server and feel very comfortable with it, so I 
think it might be useful for other users, too
and it should enter the Debian package pool. The version I started with 
is phpvirtualbox-4.0 which applies
to vb 4.0 installations only (4.0.x and 4.1.y are not forcefully API 
compatible).

Phpldapadmin served as an example and dh_make was used to create the 
deb-package source [1].
I have tested the build with dpkg-buildpackage and run through the 
install/remove/purge tests as proposed in the
deb maintainers guide.

I'm not a DM. This is my first attempt to package something for Debian. 
I can afford some time to package 4.1, too.

Please let me know if there are any chances to get this into Debian or 
if I broke any rules.

Kind regards,
Marcus

"

After googeling around, I realized the mentoring workflow and went that way.

Kind regards,
Marcus

Hi Bart,

Thanks for your interest. The package was removed due to:
"
Your package phpvirtualbox-4.1 all versions has been removed from 
mentors.debian.net for the following reason:

Your package found no sponsor for 20 weeks

Thanks,

-- mentors.debian.net
"

The developers at mentors told me to request for sponsorship at 
virtualbox-debian list (sounds quite reasonable to me), but I didn't get 
any response from there.
Maybe it helps, if some other users show their interest in having this 
package in Debian.
Due to the freezing, I dont't think, this will happen before wheezy is 
released.

Regards,
Marcus
