Subject: ITP: qpdfpresenterconsole -- PDF/Beamer presentation software.
Date: Fri, 09 Mar 2012 21:44:16 +0100
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Alexandre LISSY <alexandre.lissy@etu.univ-tours.fr>

* Package name    : qpdfpresenterconsole
  Version         : 2.5.3
  Upstream Author : Alexandre Lissy <alexandre.lissy@etu.univ-tours.fr>
* URL             : http://gitorious.org/qpdfpresenterconsole
* License         : MIT
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : This is a presentation console software, like what you can have in LibreOffice Impress with the appropriate plugin, targetting PDF presentations and especially Beamer one.

This is a software I wrote because I needed one. It provides a nice help when preesnting with PDF files.
It's especially targetted at Beamer-generated PDF presentations, supporting left/right beamer notes
(you can also provide notes in a seperated .txt file), and it also supports embedded videos (using the
movie15 package, only one video per slide for now).

I think it could be useful to several debian users, and I already have debian packaging ready (and an
Ubuntu PPA that is fed using this debian packaging stuff).

And you didn't consider improving the original program instead of
redoing everything from scratch?

It's not written in Vala, it supports playing videos and beamer notes,
at least.

I started it after using pdf presenter console for a couple of days, and
having issues with it (slow rendering on slides transitions, things like
that).

Nope, because (mainly):
 - I don't know Vala, and did not wanted to waste time learning it
 - I asked around, people were interested in the concept but on other
OSes where Vala is not available

That's fine, but I'm not sure we need that in Debian, where vala is
available.

Hi,

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

 retitle 663255 ITP: qpdfpresenterconsole -- PDF/Beamer presentation software.
 owner 663255 !
 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 <663255@bugs.debian.org>.

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