Bug#897688: RFP: tomboy-ng -- simple note-taking application

Erik Brangs
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : tomboy-ng
  Version         : 0.14
  Upstream Author : David Bannon <[hidden email]>
* URL             : https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Tomboy/tomboy-ng , https://github.com/tomboy-notes/tomboy-ng
* License         : GPL-3.0
  Programming Lang: Pascal
  Description     : simple note-taking application

The GNOME application tomboy-ng is still in development. It is supposed to replace Tomboy Notes
when it is far enough along. The original Tomboy Notes provides the essential features needed
for note taking (simple formatting, links, synchronization of notes). It is very useful for simple
notes.

According to its authors, tomboy-ng is not yet ready for general use. Nevertheless, I'd like to
see it packaged for Debian so that it will be available when it's ready. Additionally, the original
Tomboy notes is currently not in testing and I'd rather have an unstable Tomboy variant in the next
release than no Tomboy at all.

By CCing pkg-gnome-maintainers I assume you wanted the Debian GNOME team
to provide some feedback on this.

Let me note, that we already have tomboy itself in the archive
(maintained by the mono team), then gnote (maintained by the GNOME team)
and bijiben (maintained by the GNOME team).

I don't think there will be a huge interest by the GNOME team to
maintain yet another note taking application. Especially since tomboy-ng
doesn't seem to provide a proper build system and is written in Pascal,
and I don't think anyone in the team has experience with that language.

Regards,
Michael
