Next MoM period summary
=== 15. January to 29. February 2012: Luis Ibanez packaging fis-gtm ===
Luis Ibanez took over the challenging task of starting with one of the very hard packages in the beginning.
So the result that the package is not uploaded yet does not come unexpected. From a mentors perspective I'm
happy with Luis because he learned basic packaging skills and communication channels inside Debian Med
and did a pretty good overall job. He was quite verbose about his plans and success / problems so it was quite
easy for me to guide him. For the package itself he started to rework the upstream build system using cmake
which is probably a good idea anyway and helps other potential users outside Debian as well (which is a good
thing). I will keep on helping to finalise the package once Luis will confirm success in getting cmake working.
+ === 1. March to 31. March 2012: Scott Christley packaging libswarm ===
+ It seems Scott Christley was not able to spend a comparable amount of time as Luis in the first MoM period. On
the other hand Scott was not totally new to Debian packaging and there existed some preliminary packaging
of libswarm in SVN. When he tried to finish the package it turned out that another precondition (libkawa)
is needed and filed an ITP bug #666238. The plan is to finish this package first.
