* Package name    : libxaw3dxft
  Version         : 1.6.2
  Upstream Author : J.-P. Demailly <demailly _at_ fourier.ujf-grenoble.fr>
* URL             : https://sourceforge.net/projects/sf-xpaint/
* License         : X Consortium License and others
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : An extended version of Xaw3d with support for UTF8


Xaw3dxft is an extended version of Xaw3d, developed as part of xpaint
with support for UTF8 input and UTF8 encoding of text, and rendering
text with the Freetype library and Truetype fonts.

It should be mostly compatible with the original Xaw3d library, except
for font management: everything using the old X11 core font routines
should be replaced by their freetype equivalents.

This library is already part of Debian [0], but the new versions of
xpaint and of libxaw3dxft are not part of the same "(upstream)
software package" thus, to be able to package the latest version of
xpaint, I need to create the package for the new version of this
library.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of libxaw3dxft 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 libxaw3dxft, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 668964 ITP: libxaw3dxft -- An extended version of Xaw3d with support for UTF8
 owner 668964 !
 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 <668964@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
