Bug#756789: ITP: spork -- DRb (Distributed Ruby) server for testing frameworks

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Miguel Landaeta <nomadium <at> debian.org>

* Package name    : spork
  Version         : 0.9.2
  Upstream Author : Tim Harper <timcharper <at> gmail.com>
* URL             : https://github.com/sporkrb/spork

  Description     : DRb (Distributed Ruby) server for testing frameworks

 Spork is a test server (similar to the script/spec_server that used to be
 provided by rspec-rails), except rather than using the Rails constant
 unloading to reload your files, it forks a copy of the server each
 time you run your tests.
 .
 It supports the following testing frameworks:
  * Rspec
  * Cucumber
  * Test::Unit

  Description     : module to color screen output using extended escape sequences

Term::ExtendedColor provides functions for sending so called extended escape
sequences to the terminal. This ought to be used with a 256-color compatible
terminal.

The codes generated by this module comply to the extension of the ANSI colors
standard first implemented in xterm in 1999. The first 16 color indexes (0 -
15) are the regular ANSI colors, while index 16 - 255 are the extendes ones.
Most terminal emulators support this extension.

Bug#756758: ITP: lazr.authentication -- library providing middleware basic and OAuth authentication

  Upstream Author : William Grant, Dimitri John Ledkov
* URL or Web page : https://launchpad.net/lazr.authentication

  Description     : library providing middleware basic and OAuth authentication

A self-contained, easily reusable, Python library for basic and OAuth
authentication. With it you can protect resources with authentication
methods, and stack them as well.

This is a small, self-contained and simplistic package, part of the lazr
python namespace providing authentication middlewares. I'd like to
package it, as it's used in the test-suites of launchpadlib dependencies
and having ability to execute complete test-suites is paramount to
verify python3 port of launchpadlib.

This package will be maintained in debian-python modules team. Stefano
is pre-listed as an uploader (as the maintainer of a few other lazr.*
packages).

Dimitri.

MySQL server and client virtual packages


Hi Fellow Devel's

Over the last 6 months, we have introduced a few new MySQL variants
into Debian and expanded the use of the existing (but never formalized
AFAICT) virtual-mysql-* virtual packages to supporting switching
in/out the different variants.

The wider intent is that all maintainers of packages that depend on
mysql-server or mysql-client are encouraged to add as alternative
dependencies the virtual packages virtual-mysql-server[1] or
virtual-mysql-client[2].

This will enable the alternative MariaDB and Percona packages to
satisfy the dependency. MySQL 5.5, MariaDB 5.5 and PXC 5.5 are all
binary-compatible and most likely to work with any program that
currently uses MySQL in Debian. If you prefer some of the non-Oracle
versions of MySQL, you can even default to one of them using syntax
like for example 'Depends: mariadb-server | virtual-mysql-server'.

Regards

James

Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : python-xstatic-jquery
  Version         : 1.7.2.0+dfsg1

* URL             : https://bitbucket.org/thomaswaldmann/xstatic-jquery
* License         : Expat
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : jquery XStatic support

 XStatic is a packaging standard to package external (often 3rd party) static
 files as a Python package, so they are easily usable on all operating systems,
 with any package management system or even without one.
 .
 Many Python projects need to use some specific data files, like javascript,
 css, java applets, images, etc. Sometimes these files belong to YOUR project
 (then you may want to package them separately, but you could also just put
 them into your main package). But in many other cases, those files are
 maintained by someone else (like jQuery javascript library or even much bigger
 js libraries or applications) and you definitely do not really want to merge
 them into your project. So, you want to have static file packages, but you
 don’t want to get lots of stuff you do not want. Thus, stuff required by
 XStatic file packages (especially the main, toplevel XStatic package) tries to
 obey to be a MINIMAL, no-fat thing. XStatic doesn't "sell" any web framework
 or other stuff you don't want. Maybe there will be optional XStatic extensions
 for all sorts of stuff, but they won't be required if you just want the files.
 .
 By having static files in packages, it is also easier to build virtual envs,

Bug#756654: ITP: rohc -- RObust Header Compression (ROHC) library

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Simon Paillard <spaillard <at> debian.org>

* Package name    : rohc
  Version         : 1.7.0
  Upstream Author : Didier Barvaux <didier <at> rohc-lib.org>
* URL             : http://rohc-lib.org/
* License         : LGPL-2.1+
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : RObust Header Compression (ROHC) library

RObust Header Compression (ROHC) is a standardized method defined by the IETF
in RFC3095 to compress the IP, UDP, RTP, and TCP headers of Internet packets.
This compression scheme differs from other compression schemes by the fact that
it performs well over links where the packet loss rate is high, such as
wireless links

The library is also provided with application like rohctunnel, which makes a
ROHC-over-UDP or ROHC-over-Ethernet tunnel.

The library is also used by packages not (yet?) in Debian:
* http://opensand.org/ A satellite telecommunication system emulation platform
* Patched versions of openvpn

A first version of packaging is available at
http://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/users/spaillard/rohc.git/
https://people.debian.org/~spaillard/rohc/1.7.0/

I don't need a sponsor, but I'd welcome reviewers as it's my first library package.
