Hi Daniel,
I am looking for a sponsor for my package "vorbisgain"
* Package name : vorbisgain
Version : 0.37-1
* URL : http://sjeng.org/vorbisgain.html
* License : GPL-2
Section : sound
vorbisgain - add Replay Gain volume tags to Ogg Vorbis files
I had a look at your package and noted the following issues:

- Your debian/copyright is inaccurate. The FSF and Michael Smith are
not mentioned anywhere, although they own the copyright on some
files. Most files seem to be LGPL, not GPL. You may need to clarify
a few things with upstream, if possible; vorbis.c is said to be
"distributed under the GNU General Public License, version 2.1" and
that "a copy of this license is included with this source", but the
GPL-2.1 doesn't exist as far as I know, and the only license
included in the source is the LGPL-2.1.

You can use 'licensecheck -r --copyright .' to help you get the
correct copyright information.

You should also add yourself to the debian/* paragraph, and from the
changelog, looks like Alessio Treglia should be there too.

Upstream-Source isn't a valid field. Use Source.

It is also customary to include a bit more of the license text in
the License paragraphs. You can find what's usually included at the
end of COPYING, from "This library is free software", and changing
the last paragraph with "If not, see
<http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>". You can then add one last paragraph
that reads "On Debian systems, the complete text"...

- In debian/rules, you now bypass 'make distclean' entirely. You
probably want to call dh_auto_clean first in the override.

- The upstream NEWS file should be installed as a changelog, not as
documentation. See dh_installchangelogs(1). This will also get rid
of a pedantic lintian warning.

- In debian/changelog, you mentioned that you bumped the standards
version; were any changes required for that? Note it in the
changelog.

- In the examples about recursion in vorbisgain(1), it would be much
clearer if directory names included the suffix '/'.

Cheers,

your time and support.

Here is the dsc file up at mentors.d.n:

And here is the full changelog entry for this upload:

* debian/rules now removes automake's .log and .status in "clean".
* Bumped standards version to 3.9.3; No changes needed.
* debian/patches/0006-manpage_hyphens.patch:
- Corrected many hyphen-used-as-minus-sign lintian complaints in the
manpage.
* debian/patches/0007-recursively_spelling.patch:
- Corrected a spelling mistake, "recursivly". (Closes: #661999)
* debian/patches/0008-manpage_recursion_mistake.patch:
- The manpage no longer shows examples which don't work. (Closes: #447402)
* debian/watch has been fixed.

changelog file.

I'd be very glad if someone were to upload this package for me.

Regards,

Daniel
