* Package name    : cc65
  Version         : 2.13.3
  Upstream Author : Ullrich von Bassewitz <uz@cc65.org>
* URL             : http://www.cc65.org/
* License         : zlib and non-free
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : Cross compiler and toolchain for 6502-based systems

cc65 is a complete cross development package for 6502-based systems. It
features a C compiler plus all the standard binutils one would expect
from a toolchain, including an archiver, an assembler, a disassembler,
a linker, an object file dump utility and even a 6502 CPU simulator. A
resource compiler for the GEOS operating system as well as various
support libraries are also part of the distribution.

The following targets are supported:

    * Commodore C64
    * GEOS operating system on C64
    * Commodore C128
    * Commodore C16, C116 and Plus/4
    * Commodore P500
    * Commodore 600/700 family
    * Apple II
    * Atari 8 bit family
    * Oric Atmos
    * Nintendo NES
    * Watara Supervision
    * Atari Lynx

Both direct library support (startup/initialization code) as well as
support libraries are supplied for these targets. These libraries
include support for the following APIs:

    * conio (text-based console I/O, non-scrolling)
    * dio (block-oriented disk I/O)
    * em (expanded memory, allowing to address >64K RAM)
    * joystick (support for joystick devices)
    * mouse (mouse support and other absolute input devices)
    * serial (serial I/O)
    * tgi (2D graphics primitives)

The cc65 compiler was originally written by John R. Dunning and comes
with an open source license which is not DFSG-compliant since it forbids
to charge for the distribution of a copy of the software. cc65 is therefore
going to be part of the non-free distribution.

cc65 has been moved to GitHub, with a new main author:

   https://github.com/oliverschmidt/cc65
   http://oliverschmidt.github.io/cc65/

I have started packaging cc65 for Debian (and other systems) on the
OpenSUSE build system (OBS):

  https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:strik/cc65

(To be more precise: I was publishing cc65 as .DEB for some years now. I
generated it from local resources. After the change of the main author,
the new author preferred something on public sources; that's why we used
OBS. It would be extremely simple to create a "real" Debian version of
it again.)

I would be willing to maintain the package (neglecting the formal
process of becoming a Debian maintainer, which I read some years ago,
but do not remember completely at the moment).

What else would we need to figure out?

Best regards
Spiro.

We should get into touch. I am still interested in maintaining cc65,
so we could work together. I have recently been stressed out, so I
didn't make any process, so I could definitely need some help ;).

Has the license situation of cc65 changed? In case it is now licensed in
a way that is acceptable for Debian, I am happy to review packaging
and/or sponsor your upload.
