Bug#806767: ITP: libzstd -- fast lossless compression algorithm, targeting real-time compression scenarios

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Kevin Murray <spam <at>>

* Package name    : libzstd
  Version         : 0.4.0
  Upstream Author : Yann Collet 
* URL             :
* License         : BSD
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : fast lossless compression algorithm

Zstd, short for Zstandard, is a fast lossless compression algorithm, targeting
real-time compression scenarios at zlib-level compression ratio. Zstd can also
offer stronger compression ratio at the cost of compression speed. Speed /
Ratio trade-off is configurable by small increment, to fit different
situations. Note however that decompression speed is preserved and remain
roughly the same at all settings, a property shared by most LZ compression
algorithms, such as zlib. 

This will be co-maintained under Debian Med.

  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : a personal synchronisation server for Anki (a flashcard learning program)

 Anki is a powerful Open Source flashcard application, which helps you
 quickly and easily memorize facts over the long term utilizing a spaced
 repetition algorithm. Anki's main form is a desktop application (for
 Windows, Linux and MacOS) which can sync to a web version (AnkiWeb) and
 mobile versions for Android and iOS.

 This is a personal Anki Server, which you can sync against instead of
 AnkiWeb. It also includes a RESTful API, so that you could implement
 your own AnkiWeb-like site if you wanted.

I'd like to coordinate with the maintainer(s?) of anki, I'm open to

  Description     : static HTML+JavaScript photo album generator

 “fgallery” is a static photo gallery generator with no frills that has a
 stylish, minimalist look. “fgallery” shows your photos, and nothing else.
 There is no server-side processing, only static generation. The resulting
 gallery can be uploaded anywhere without additional requirements and works with
 any modern browser.
 * Automatically orients pictures without quality loss.
 * Multi-camera friendly: automatically sorts pictures by time: just throw your
   (and your friends) photos and movies in a directory. The resulting gallery
   shows the pictures in seamless shooting order.
 * Adapts to the current screen size and proportions, switching from
   horizontal/vertical layout and scaling thumbnails automatically.
 * Includes original (raw) pictures in a zip file for downloading.
 * Panoramas can be seen full-size by default.

I'm packaging this because although the output is static, the resulting
galleries are quite dynamic, and different from other web album software

Bug#806726: ITP: gubbins -- phylogenetic analysis of genome sequences

Package: wnpp

* Package name    : gubbins
  Version         : 1.4.3

* URL             :

  Description     : phylogenetic analysis of genome sequences
 Gubbins supports rapid phylogenetic analysis of large samples of
 recombinant bacterial whole genome sequences.
 Gubbins (Genealogies Unbiased By recomBinations In Nucleotide
 Sequences) is an algorithm that iteratively identifies loci containing
 elevated densities of base substitutions while concurrently constructing
 a phylogeny based on the putative point mutations outside of these
 regions. Simulations demonstrate the algorithm generates highly accurate
 reconstructions under realistic models of short-term bacterial
 evolution, and can be run in only a few hours on alignments of hundreds
 of bacterial genome sequences.

Bug#806716: ITP: python-jellyfish -- Python library for doing approximate and phonetic matching of strings

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Diego M. Rodriguez" <diego.plan9 <at>>

* Package name    : python-jellyfish
  Version         : 0.5.1
  Upstream Author : James Turk <james.p.turk <at>>
* URL             :
* License         : BSD-2-clause
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : Python library for doing approximate and phonetic matching of strings

Jellyfish is a python library for doing approximate and phonetic
matching of strings. Includes algorithms for string comparison
(Levenshtein Distance, Damerau-Levenshtein Distance, Jaro Distance,
Jaro-Winkler Distance, Match Rating Approach Comparison, Hamming
Distance) and phonetic encoding (American Soundex, Metaphone, NYSIIS,
Match Rating Codex).

This package is a dependency on the latest versions of the "beets"
package, as noted in a recent bug report [1]. Jellyfish itself has no
external dependencies, and includes an optional C implementation of its
algorithms compiled using the distutils build_ext command [2].

Ideally I'd love to maintain this package under the umbrella and
hopefully guidance of the Debian Python Modules Team.

Please note that this package is unrelated to the existing "jellyfish"
debian package [3].

Still trying to work out how this could work. What path should I put in

STATIC_URL is configured by the application that uses
django-ajax-selects. We have no idea what it might be set to. So we
cannot hardcode any path into bootstrap.js

Also, bootstrap.js is also a static file, so we cannot use
{{ STATIC_URL }} here.

bootstrap.js is a NOP if jquery and jquery-ui has already been loaded by
the application.

 The specutils package implements base classes and utilities for

 but for now is being developed independently.

This is an Astropy Affiliated Package [1]. It will maintained
within the Debian Astronomy Working Group. A git repository is
created on alioth [2].

 A small command line tool to simplify releasing software by updating all

 Also creates commits and tags:
  * version formats are highly configurable
  * works without any VCS, but happily reads tag information from and
    writes commits and tags to Git and Mercurial if available
  * just handles text files, so it's not specific to any programming

Bug#806583: ITP: openbsc -- GSM Base Station Controller (BSC) and minimalistic GSM network implementation

Package: wnpp

* Package name    : openbsc
  Version         : 0.15.0

* License         : AGPL-3
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : GSM Base Station Controller (BSC) and minimalistic GSM network implementation

It started as a BSC (Base Station Controller) side implementation of the A-bis
protocol, as implemented in the GSM Technical Specification 08.5x and 12.21. It
can run either

 - as a classic BSC, exposing an A interface towards an external MSC, or
 - as NITB (Network In The Box), whert implements a minimal subset of the BSC,
   MSC. SMSC? and HLR. 

The goal of the project is to

 - provide a basis for experimentation and security research with GSM from the
   network side
 - provide a zero-cost alternative for hands-on experience with GSM systems in
   education and training
 - learn more about GSM networks on a lower level, particularly the practical
   aspects with real-world equipment
 - provide a stable/reliable network-side GSM implementation for small networks
   that don't need millions of subscribers or 99.99999% availability 

I plan to maintain it as part of the Debian Science team together with libosmocore
and related packages.
