Fwd: RFS:opensearchserver package
I am looking for a sponsor for my package of OpenSearchServer. I sent an RFS to the debian-mentors list two days ago.
As OpenSearchServer is a JAVA application running into TOMCAT, I thought the DEBIAN/JAVA community is a good place to find help !
Thank you if you can have a look, and help me to find a sponsor.
Best regards,Emmanuel Keller

I am the creator and main developer of OpenSearchServer, an open source search engine hosted at SourceForge.
Because a large part of our community is using the Debian distribution, I think it would be great to have it embedded in the Debian distribution.
OpenSearchServer is hosted at SourceForge:http://sourceforge.net/projects/opensearchserve/
The application works with TOMCAT6 and any *JAVA 5 or JAVA 6 virtual machine. *I did my best to fit well with the Tomcat6 package.I think a good sponsor will be someone who is comfortable with JAVA/TOMCAT environment.
Here are the information needed, copy of the current control file:

I've spent like 5 minutes now and tried to get a basic impression, what
OpenSearchServer is. Your project page is definitely not optimzed for people
with few time.
I still have no idea, what OpenSearchServer can provide me what isn't already
in Apache SOLR. It seems, that it's just a tiny web frontend to existing
BTW, the links to the user and API docus ask me for a login.
The link "OpenSearchServer Community Edition Features List" makes me wonder.
Debian is not the place for crippled community editions with limited
functionality to advertise your proprietary variant.
Two days is not a long time to wait for a sponsor. All DDs are normally
overworked. (I'm not a DD.) And if a DD doesn't see an appealing reason to
sponsor your package within 5 minutes, he'll probably just ignore your
