Subject: pygoocanvas: URL in copyright file is incorrect
Date: Wed, 14 Nov 2012 22:26:57 +0000
Source: pygoocanvas
Version: 0.14.1-1
Severity: serious
Justification: ยง12.5 the copyright file must say where the upstream sources were obtained

Hi!

The copyright file for pygoocanvas contains the old berlios.de address for
this project which is not the correct location for obtaining the upstream
sources.

The correct location appears to now be:

  http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pygoocanvas/

Additionally, please give a Homepage field for this package in debian/control

  https://live.gnome.org/PyGoocanvas

cheers
Stuart

It was correct at the time it was downloaded.  This is more of an
accuracy of the documentation issue.

Best wishes,
Mike

Actually, I very much doubt that is true. The berlios download page

	https://developer.berlios.de/project/showfiles.php?group_id=6813

shows plenty of versions you can download but not the version in Debian. I find 
it highly unlikely that upstream removed the latest few versions from berlios 
while not removing all versions (if berlios allows you to remove uploads at 
all). The URL in copyright was true for the 0.10 series of uploads but not for 
the 0.14 packages.

Sure.  I meant it was accurate for the original download when the
copyright file was created.

Anyway, its still just a matter of the documentation's accuracy to
have that info up to date.

Best wishes,
