* Package name    : sdl-audioin
  Version         : 0.3-rc1
  Upstream Author : Tyler Montbriand <tsm@accesscomm.ca>

  Description     : Library to add audio input support to SDL

This source package builds three small binaries.
Extracts from the control file are given below.

I need this package, despite its age and despite the continuing development of SDL
itself, in order to continue packaging PEBL (the Psychology Experiment Building
Language) - see #650775. I have spoken with the author of PEBL, who notes that this
library is needed until SDL provides audio input support by itself (which, I hear, is
on the roadmap).

Package: libsdl-audioin0-dev
Description: Library to add audio input support to SDL - development files
 SDL_audioin adds audio input support to SDL, and is modelelled after SDL's
 audio output subsystem, providing a very similar simple API.
 .
 This package contains the development files.

Package: libsdl-audioin0
Description: Library to add audio input support to SDL
 SDL_audioin adds audio input support to SDL, and is modelelled after SDL's
 audio output subsystem, providing a very similar simple API.
 .
 This package contains the shared library.

Package: sdl-scope
Description: Demo oscilloscope for libsdl-audioin
 SDL_Scope is a simple example application that reads sound from a sound
 card and displays it on the screen.
 .
 Using it is simple - just run it, and it goes. It features:
  * Linux and Windows crossplatform interoperability
  * Low CPU use and quick response time via partial redraws
  * Resizable window
  * Fullscreen capability: alt-enter toggles

From the titile of the bug, I assume you want to maintain this package. 

May I suggest you join sdl team to do so ? 

This way, you'll be able to use our team's repo (git) and sponsoring will be 
much easier. 

To join see the (new) "joining the team" section in:

http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DebianSdlGroup#preview

all the best

Hi Dominique,

Well, all I've done is produce a package. I think it complies with
policy and all the new-fangled stuff like multi-arch, and it is source
and binary lintian clean. Upstream considers that the project is
complete, so I think the maintenance burden should be very low. I get
the impression that it only supports OSS right now (unfortunately), so
if I find myself with some free time, I might try and hack a
PulseAudio back-end for it (but I'm not sure how free for that sort of
hacking I'll be over the next few months). In any case, I don't mind
looking after the package.

That sounds like a good idea.

Yes; I'll have to look into how the git repo is structured. Should I
update the control file to point to some future X-Vcs for this
package, once I have had a look, then? And should the Maintainer field
point at the team?

My main concern in joining the team is one of commitment: I don't want
to sign myself up for giving time to help out with all sorts of SDL
issues, not because I'm not keen to help, but because I think it would
be dishonest to make such a commitment when I'm not sure I have the
free time to do so. Of course, team maintenance does seem to reduce
the work burden for all concerned, so in that sense, I would be keen
to join.

Many thanks for your reply,

Hi,

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

 retitle 670358 ITP: sdl-audioin -- Library to add audio input support to SDL
 owner 670358 !
 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 <670358@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
