Bug#930709: RFS: pveclib/1.0.1-1 [ITP]

Gabriel F. T. Gomes-4
Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: wishlist

Hi, mentors,

I have filled the RFS template below, but I have a few words beforehand.

1. I know we are under the freeze, so I was a bit wary to send the RFS
now.  On the other hand, I didn't actually find anything saying that I
should wait for the freeze to lift, so I decided to send it.  Correct me
if I am wrong, please.

2. I have worked with upstream to get my concerns fixed (as you may see
in the ITP thread at https://bugs.debian.org/929405).  Upstream was
really helpful and responsive, so if other problems come up, I'm
confident that they can be solved upstream first.

3. This is the second package I make from scratch.  The first was pragha.
Besides that, I maintain bash-completion, which I adopted about a year
ago.  However, the email address in them ([hidden email])
is a bit different from this one (and a lot of people have trouble
writing it down, so I'm unhappy with it)...  Both addresses are listed
as uid in my gpg key, and I would like to use this new address from now
on (with plans to update the address in the other packages).  If that
is a problem, I can switch back to the old one (I suppose it isn't,
because DMs should have a way to switch to @debian.org addresses once
they become DDs, but I digress).

4. This is a powerpc package, so you might need access to a powerpc
server in order to test it.  If you haven't got one at home, :B, you
can get access to a VM at http://openpower.ic.unicamp.br/minicloud/
(that's what I used).

Now, the regular RFS stuff... :)

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

 * Package name    : pveclib
   Version         : 1.0.1-1
   Upstream Author : Steven Munroe <[hidden email]>
 * URL             : https://github.com/open-power-sdk/pveclib
 * License         : Apache License 2.0
   Section         : libs

It builds those binary packages:

 * libpvec-dev - Development files for the Power Vector Library
 * libpvec0 - Power Vector Library

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


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

  dget -x https://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/p/pveclib/pveclib_1.0.1-1.dsc

Kind regards,

Hahaha, it took me some time to understand what you were talking about. :)
Thanks for the review and for the upload.

I'll see if I can reproduce it with qemu-user, thanks for the feedback.

Thank you!
