Default Bug#497474: ITP: ipager -- netwm compliant pager application

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Daniel Moerner <dmoerner@gmail.com>

Package name : ipager
Version : 1.1.0
Upstream Author : Sukhanov Vadim <vad@useperl.ru>, Shashkin Konstantin
<mit3z@archlinux.ru>, Mathias Gumz <akira@fluxbox.org>
URL : http://useperl.ru/ipager/index.en.html
License : MIT
Programming Lang: C++
Description : netwm compliant pager application

IPager is a pager originally developed for Fluxbox but it can also be
used with other window managers.
It supports the following features:
- Zoom on desktop images
- Main window transparency
- Transparent workspaces icons.
- Theming
- You can send a window from one workspace to another
- Application icons

Francois Fevotte originally filed an ITP against ipager
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=392804)
but later closed it for lack of interest and upstream development.
I believe that ipager should have a place in Debian. On the Fluxbox
wiki, ipager is listed as the first pager recommendation, whereas
fbpager (currently in debian) is deprecated. Although there has been a
lack of upstream development, the developers have been willing to
provide patches through email to fix build errors with newer versions of
gcc, and the package currently builds fine against sid.
