Bug#832546: ITP: kyklop -- Finds, tracks, and characterizes tropical cyclones in climate simulation data

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Klaus Zimmermann <klaus_zimmermann <at> gmx.de>

* Package name    : kyklop
  Version         : 0.1.1
  Upstream Author : Klaus Zimmermann <klaus_zimmermann <at> gmx.de>
* URL             : https://github.com/fuentesfranco/kyklop
* License         : MIT
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : Finds, tracks, and characterizes tropical cyclones in climate simulation data

 Kyklop analyses the output of climate models to examine tropical cyclones.
 At the moment it is limited to analysis of RegCM[1] output.
 It can find tropical cyclones, perform tracking, that is connect cyclones in
 successive time steps to form tracks, and measure various properties, like
 like their maximal wind speed.
 This package provides the kyklop command line tool.
 .
 [1] https://www.ictp.it/research/esp/models/regcm4.aspx

Kyklop solves an important problem in climate research.
A scientific publication featuring kyklop has been accepted.
Furthermore it is already in use by people outside of its originating group.

I have applied for membership of the Python Application Packaging Team (PAPT)
and hope to maintain the package within this team.

Bug#832508: O: systemd-shim -- SysVinit shim for systemd

Package: wnpp

Neither Steve nor I still have any interest in maintaining
systemd-shim. Debian's default init system is systemd, Ubuntu supports
nothing else any more (and does not even have systemd-shim any more),
upstart is gone from both Debian and Ubuntu, so the only use case for
it right now is running Debian with SysVinit (in particular, on
non-Linux flavors).

So this should be picked up by someone who is interested in keeping SysV init
support for desktops (i. e. which need logind or timedatectl) alive in Debian.
There are currently no release-critical bugs and the package is working
reasonably well for main use cases, but there *are* a few bugs worth looking
into.

The upstream branch is currently at <https://github.com/desrt/systemd-shim/>.
Allison isn't interested any more in this either, so I suggest that
the upstream repo gets mothballed and systemd-shim just becomes a
Debian-native package (I'm not aware of any other distro using it
anyway).

Note that systemd-shim currently uses cgmanager, which by itself is obsolete [1].

Package description:

  Description: shim for systemd
   This package emulates the systemd function that are required to run
   the systemd helpers without using the init service

Proposed mass bug filing: use and misuse of dbus-launch (dbus-x11)

I'm planning to do a mass-bug-filing against packages that mention
dbus-x11 in their dependencies, or dbus-launch in their code, asking
maintainers to adjust their dependencies to make dbus-x11 optional.
My goal is that users can install the major desktop tasks in stretch
(GNOME, KDE, etc.) with either one of dbus-user-session or dbus-x11,
defaulting to dbus-user-session for new installations.

I'm deliberately not doing a dd-list yet because there's an open
question about the order of preference, but the affected source
packages are basically
<https://codesearch.debian.net/search?q=dbus-%28x11|launch%29>
(minus some false positives that just mention dbus-launch or dbus-x11
without any technical effect). I'll re-post this with a dd-list when
there's something like consensus.

The tl;dr version:

* I think we should default to dbus-user-session for stretch on Linux.
* dbus-launch (dbus-x11) without dbus-user-session should continue to
  be supported, but should be a non-default configuration on Linux.
* On kFreeBSD and Hurd, dbus-launch is still the best we can do.
* Regression tests should use dbus-run-session, not dbus-launch,
  on all kernels.
* Fallback plan: make it possible for early adopters to use
  dbus-user-session instead of dbus-launch, but keep dbus-launch the
  default for new installs even on Linux, and reconsider for stretch+1.

Bug#832466: ITP: python-ubjson -- Universal Binary JSON encoder/decoder

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Orestis Ioannou <orestis <at> oioannou.com>

* Package name    : python-ubjson
  Version         : 0.8.5
  Upstream Author : 2016 Iotic Labs Ltd vilnis.termanis <at> iotic-labs.com
* URL             : https://github.com/Iotic-Labs/py-ubjson
* License         : Apache-2.0
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : Universal Binary JSON encoder/decoder

Universal Binary JSON encoder/decoder based on the draft-12 specification.
It’s meant to behave very much like Python’s built-in JSON module

Limitations

    * The No-Op type is not supported. (This should arguably be a protocol-
level rather than serialisation-level option.)
    * Strongly-typed containers are only supported by the decoder (apart from
for bytes/bytearray).
    * Encoder/decoder extensions are not supported at this time.
    * cython optimizations could be improved.

Bug#832451: ITP: aufs4 -- advanced multi layered unification filesystem version 4.x

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Jan Luca Naumann <j.naumann <at> fu-berlin.de>

* Package name    : aufs4
  Version         : 4.6+20160523

* URL             : http://aufs.sourceforge.net/
* License         : GPL2+
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : advanced multi layered unification filesystem version 4.x

Aufs is a stackable unification filesystem such as Unionfs, which unifies
several directories and provides a merged single directory.
In the early days, aufs was entirely re-designed and re-implemented
Unionfs Version 1.x series. After
many original ideas, approaches and improvements, it
becomes totally different from Unionfs while keeping the basic features.
See Unionfs Version 1.x series for the basic features.
Recently, Unionfs Version 2.x series begin taking some of same
approaches to aufs's.

I'm intending to package the version 4.x for Debian. The module
should use dkms to be build as kernel module.

I hope to do the work as part of the filesystems project on Alioth:
https://alioth.debian.org/projects/filesystems/

I need a sponsor for the package.
