Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

Lazylpsolverlibs [1] is a set of libraries designed to make Coin-Osi
[2] support commercial solvers without recompilation. Under the hood,
dlopen calls are used on the commercial libraries.

Currently the package for Coin-Osi (coinor-libosi-dev) is useless for
people who own licenses for commercial solvers, because it does not
support these solvers. Should it be recompiled against
lazylpsolverlibs, Coin-Osi could be useful for everyone: those who own
and those who do not own licenses for commercial solvers.

The lazylpsolverlibs license is the OSI-approved Eclipse Public License.

  Description     : libraries that proxy function calls to commercial lp solvers

Lazylpsolverlibs [1] is a set of libraries designed to make Coin-Osi
[2] support commercial solvers without recompilation. Under the hood,
it uses dlopen on the commercial libraries.

----

Currently, the package for Coin-Osi (coinor-libosi-dev) cannot be used by
people who use commercial solvers. This partly defeats the purpose of
using a multi-solver interface.

Adding lazylpsolverlibs in Debian and recompiling coinor-libosi-dev against it
would solve this problem, thus this ITP.

Thanks!

Hi,

A long time ago, you expressed interest in packaging lazylpsolverlibs. Unfortunately,
it seems that it did not happen. In Debian, we try not to keep ITP bugs open
for a too long time, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to
refrain from packaging the software.

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

 retitle 679504 ITP: lazylpsolverlibs -- libraries that proxy function calls
 owner 679504 !
 thanks

It is also a good idea to document your progress on this ITP from time to
time, by mailing <679504@bugs.debian.org>.  If you need guidance on how to
package this software, please reply to this email, and/or contact the
debian-mentors@lists.debian.org mailing list.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
