From author's site: TauDEM (Terrain Analysis Using Digital Elevation
Models) is a suite of Digital Elevation Model (DEM) tools for the
extraction and analysis of hydrologic information from topography as
represented by a DEM.

TauDEM is a quite popular set of command line tools and in many aspects
outperforms similar tools available in GRASS GIS. The unavailability of
this package on GNU/Linux was brought up on qgis-developer [1] mailing
list and also it was forwared to debian-gis [2].

QGIS users will benefit from this package as there is a wrapper plugin
exists named sextante-taudem [3].

I would like to package taudem. However there are several versions
available as of now that are similar in functionality but not quite
interchangeable. Namely, one may think of 5.2 as a batch processing
version of 5.0.6 . Thus some may want to have both installed. I
understand it will be cumbersome to have versioned package
name. Therefore I suggest to package 5.0.6 under taudem name and 5.2 as
taudem-mf (new wnpp bug will follow if this idea is accepted). This way
it would be possible to provide two concurrent versions in case authors
of software will continue to release code in two branches.

I have set up a ppa [4] for Ubuntu users. The original source code is
patched using quilt (3.0) format and alternatives are used to provide
executables in /usr/bin/ .

Hi,

A long time ago, you expressed interest in packaging taudem. 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 taudem 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 taudem, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 680565 ITP: taudem -- Terrain Analysis Using Digital Elevation Models
 owner 680565 !
 thanks

It is also a good idea to document your progress on this ITP from time to
time, by mailing <680565@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>
