What makes these "Standard"?

I suppose these aren't "standard" because they aren't included with Make. GMSL
is the name given to this project by the upstream author because he feels that
these are the thing that SHOULD have been standard.

I agree that this name is inaccurate, but should we be editorializing on the
naming of upstream software? Standard or not, I find this library useful, and I
think it's worthy for inclusion into Debian.

Thoughts?

Yeah, this is not uncommon, I also think that everything I do should
become standard. ;)

Anyway, I agree with you that we probably shouldn't do anything
about it. Maybe a small note in the description would be good
though, like:

  Contrary to what the name might suggest, this library is not
  an official standard pertaining to GNU Make, but an independent
  project.

Hi Nick.

I'm finished with the package, but haven't yet found sponsorship for it; I'm not
yet a DD, so this is required. The package sources are at

http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=users/dkogan-guest/gmsl.git

If you want to do a review, or to help with finding a sponsor, that would be
appreciated.

Thanks

dima
