Default Bug#616626: ITP: pcb2gcode -- command-line tool for engraving PCBs using CNCs

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: chrysn <chrysn@fsfe.org>

* Package name : pcb2gcode
Version : 1.1.0
Upstream Author : Patrick Birnzain <pbirnzain@users.sourceforge.net>
* URL : http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/pcb2gcode/
* License : GPL-3+
Programming Lang: C++
Description : command-line tool for engraving PCBs using CNCs

pcp2gcode is a command-line tool for isolation routing and
drilling PCBs that provides full support for both single- and
double-sided boards. It generates G-code (RS-274 code) for
engraving and drilling from Gerber and Excellon files.

i have packaged this program half a year ago (forgot to file an itp) and
have been building updated packages several times since then.

the packaging relies heavily on dh-autoreconf; apart from that, its
debian/rules includes the necessary provisions for building a -dbg
package and solving the rpath issue [1] brutally using chrpath.
concerning dependencies, the program links against boost, gtk (for image
operations and saving) and gerbv (the gerber viewer for file loading).
it is lintian clean up to --pedantic.

collaboration with upstream works well, there are numerous patches i've
either written myself or relayed from other users that are now
integrated.

the package is about to be uploaded to mentors [2] (will be uploaded as
soon as i get a bug number for this). please review the package; i'm
about to submit it to debian-mentors@l.d.o with RFS.
