* Package name    : ckon
  Version         : 0.6.1
  Upstream Author : Patrick Huck <patrick@the-huck.com>

  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : ckon is an automatic build tool for C++ software developed within the CERN ROOT data analysis framework.

ckon is a C++ program/tool which automatically takes care of compilation, dictionary generation and linking of programs and libraries developed for data analyses within the CERN ROOT analysis framework. This includes parsing include headers to figure out which libraries the main programs need to be linked to. It uses automake/autoconf to be platform independent and GNU install compliant. In addition, m4 macros are automatically downloaded and the according compiler flags included based on a list of boost libraries provided in the config file. For the purpose of YAML database usage, a m4 macro can be downloaded during setup to link against the yaml-cpp library.

Hi Patrick,

I guess you will maintain this in Debian Science team.  It would be
great to forward ITPs like this always to the list to keep people
informed.

Thanks for working on this

     Andreas.

Hi Andreas, Hi Debian-Science Team,

@Andreas: yes, I think working on the ckon package within the Debian 
Science team would make the most sense. Thank you for the suggestion. 
I'm forwarding the ITP to the debian-science-maintainers list, too.

I've been following the debian science policy [1] to start packaging 
ckon. Please find the binary packages (and the git-buildpackage 
repository) on github [2]. Unfortunately, I couldn't request membership 
in the Debian Science Team and create a package repository on 
git.debian.org due to alioth.debian.org throwing the error message 
"Alioth Could Not Connect to Database:". I tried all day to access 
Alioth after creating an account but no success.
Also, I compiled the package on a fresh ubuntu precise32 vagrant box. 
However, ckon depends on boost1.50 which is not part of the ubuntu 
precise release. Hence, I used
libboost1.50-all-dev from ppa:brainpower/testing [3] and added it to 
Build-Depends [4]. The name might have to be changed for an appropriate 
debian release.

Thank you for your help.
best,
Patrick

I can confirm that this problem seems to exist since about 10 hours.  I
hope it will be solved quickly.  Once this is done I'd offer to sponsor
your package in case nobody else might step in according to my
Sponsering of Blends effort

I think you should rather Build-Depends from libboost-all-dev which
would simplify transitions.

Thanks for your work on this package

      Andreas.

Hi Andreas,

With Alioth being back up again, I requested membership in the Debian Science Team but am still waiting for a reply. Meanwhile, I got 'ckon' compiled on a amd64 debian box (testing release) with Build-Depends set to libboost-all-dev [1] and up-to-date m4 macros for autoconf [2]. Please find the newest package release on github [3]. For i386, testing is underway on a ubuntu saucy box.
I'm very glad to hear that you'd be willing to sponsor my package. I hope I can commit to the Debian Science Repository soon ...

Thanks much,
Patrick

Fine.  Just let me know once you have moved / cloned the Git repository to Alioth.

Kind regards

         Andreas.
