Hi,

Do you intend to maintain this package under the umbrella of pkg-ime team?

Thanks,
Aron

Sure I will be happy to maintain it as part of pkg-ime team. Is there
any general guidelines for pkg-ime team? Also note that I use CDBS
packaging :-) (I want to mention it before hand)

Here is a general guideline for pkg-ime team:
https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/IMEPackagingTeam

I personally prefer using dh7 style, but have no objection if you feel
better with cdbs.

Thanks,
Aron Xu

Thank you I will read this before I start packaging this tool. There is
one more ITP to come on ibus-sayura I would also like to maintain it as
part of this team.

The only reason I mentioned before hand was I had some trouble in other
team, I prefer CDBS but I can work with dh7 too :-).

Same here.

I know GNOME packages use cdbs and work fine if there are no problem ...
dh7 style is simpler to debug.  So please please please please use dh7.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Let me summarize:
 * dh7 "dh $@" style debian/rules
 * packaged in compat 9 supporting multi-arch as much as possible.
 * Overriode with LIBEXECDIR=/usr/lib/ibus (multi-arch forein
   plugin-executables, i.e., ibus-foo-setup)

I updated wiki page.

Osamu

I've done some draft work on this package and pushed changes to team
repo and can be accessed [1] Will it be possible for you to see if I'm
missing some technical points in the package?

I've set the --libexecdir to /usr/lib/ibus as mentioned in the post
other than that I'm getting confused if I'm supposed to add python
dependencies or not  for the package.

Also this package relies on hunspell dictionaries a lot so I'm thinking
of recommending all the hunspell- dictionaries for supported languages,
the IME itself is capable of suggesting need for hunspell dictionaries
and downloading it.

I saw the demo in Fedora but not sure how it will work on Debian. I'm
unable to test this as ibus is not working with my setup (already
another thread on the mailing list). So if some one can test it and see
if that feature requires any Debian specific patches it would be great.

Other than this copyright file is far from perfect its not at all
updated for upstream copyrights yet and watch file and other minor
stuffs are still needs update which I'm currently working on.

Thank you for allowing me to choose my preferred packaging style. I read
other mail by Osamu but I'm some what more flexible in using CDBS so I
kept the package in CDBS style (and sorry for not listening for your
request Osamu :-))
