Default Bug#460493: ITP: libfprint -- fingerprint library of fprint project

Package: wnpp
Owner: Emfox Zhou <EmfoxZhou@gmail.com>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name : libfprint
Version : 0.0.5
Upstream Author :
* URL or Web page : http://reactivated.net/fprint/wiki/Libfprint
* License : LGPL 2.1
Description : fingerprint library of fprint project

The fprint project aims to plug a gap in the Linux desktop: support for consumer
fingerprint reader devices.

Previously, Linux support for such devices has been scattered amongst different
projects (many incomplete) and inconsistent in that application developers would
have to implement support for each type of fingerprint reader separately. For
more information on where we came from, see the project history page.

We're trying to change that by providing a central system to support all the
fingerprint readers we can get our hands on. The software is open source and in
the long term we're shooting for adoption by distributions, integration into
common desktop environments, etc.

Just some comments from me:
1. fprint needs imagemagick 6.3.*, which is not yet in Debian
2. you probably want to have a look at Debian FingerForce
http://wiki.debian.org/FingerForce and have a talk with its members

Regards
Evgeni, a thinkfinger user :P

Default Bug#460493: ITP: libfprint -- fingerprint library of fprint project

Hello,

I'm directly writing to the Debian FTP Team to solve the issue with
fprint. Since the discussion started on debian-devel, I set the R-T and
M-F-T headers to point to debian-devel and bug #438922 [1]. This
because the latter is the first ITP for fprint and it's owned by the
FingerForce team (the primary place for discussion about fingerprint
software on Debian).

I've never checked that yet, but read below.

The situation is even worse:

1) another ITP (#438922 [1]) already existed for fprint and it was
worked on [2]. Debian distribution at which fprint is targeted
hasn't been decided yet: I'm in favor of experimental, while other
group members are OK with unstable

2) Kenshi Muto packaged fprint to use the AES2501 fingerprint reader in
his new Fujitsu LOOX U50 ultra mobile PC [3]

3) Emfox Zhou's packages were updated to NEW [4] no more than 6 hours
after his ITP (#460493 [5]), effectively giving no time to reply to
the ITP with the concerns above

Now, since Emfox asked how to solve this situation [6], I think the best
thing would be the FTP team to reject Emfox's packages (at the moment of
writing this mail still in NEW). Then Emfox can join the Debian
FingerForce Team and work from there on the fprint packages :-)

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca

When Emfox asks for it they can be rejected from NEW.

bye Joerg
Some AM after a mistake:
Sigh. One shouldn't AM in the early AM, as it were. <grin>

Yes, I request to remove the two packages: libfprint and pam-fprint, please.

And sorry to all the related people and fingerprint team for my hastiness.
