Re: ITP: fossology -- FOSSology is an open source license compliance software system and toolkit.




Hello,

Thank you Chris, I will keep that in mind.

Thanks Moritz to inform that. The FOSSology version last maintained on Debian was 1.2.0 which was released in 2012. The current version is 3.4.0.

Thanks Guillem. I went through the bugs reported and most of them are solved now. And FOSSology was removed due to being obsolete in bug 656591.
But we are maintaining FOSSology from 2014 so it active from at least 5 years again and I would like to adopt FOSSology.

Since I am not a Debian developer, I need your help to package and publish FOSSology as a Debian package.

You help will be much appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
Gaurav Mishra
