Bug#724939: RFS: sflowtool/3.28-1 [ITP] -- Command line utility for decoding and analyzing sflow data

Rowan Thorpe-2
Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: wishlist

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "sflowtool"

 Package name    : sflowtool
 Version         : 3.28-1
 Upstream Author : Neil McKee <[hidden email]>
 URL             : http://www.inmon.com/technology/sflowTools.php
 License         : Inmon sFlow License
                   (http://www.inmon.com/technology/sflowlicense.txt)
 Section         : non-free/net

It builds the following binary packages:

 sflowtool - Command line utility for decoding and analyzing sflow data

To access further information about this package, please visit the
following URL:

 http://mentors.debian.net/package/sflowtool

Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this
command:

 dget -x
 http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/non-free/s/sflowtool/sflowtool_3.28-1.dsc

More information about sflowtool can be obtained from its upstream
homepage: http://www.inmon.com/technology/sflowTools.php

Changes are shown below as in debian/changelog:

 sflowtool (3.28-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Initial release. (Closes: #724738)
   * sflowtool.c: Silence compiler warnings by coercing args for several
     printfs
   * sflowtool.c: Correct number of args in a printf
     (zero-indexed/one-indexed confusion)

NB: Communication with the upstream author has been established, and he
has already requested I forward my non-debian specific patches to him,
and expressed keen interest in another related InMon application being
packaged (host-sflow). The license clearly allows re-distribution so
this can at least be a candidate for "non-free", but regarding the
possibility of including it in "main" I mentioned it isn't yet clear
whether the InMon Sflow License is DFSG compatible, and he queried if
the APL (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adaptive_Public_License - as used
for host-sflow) would be considered compatible. I don't yet know if
this indicates a possibility or willingness to permit that license's
use for sflowtool or not, though. Important information can be gleaned
from this openvswitch thread
http://openvswitch.org/pipermail/dev/2010-November/thread.html#4392 but
in the end the "discussion with debian-legal" to clarify the official
DFSG-compatibility status of both licenses seemed not to eventuate...

Regards,
Rowan Thorpe
