Package: ploticus 2.11-1 [2003-09-15]
Description: Command line driven tool to generates various plots and graphs
Proposer: Jari Aalto
Aye votes: Ronald Landheer-Cieslak [1/3]
Status: Package available.
HOLD-UPS: Not enough votes (need 2 more). No "good to go" review.
I had actually reviewed all of Jari's packages and found a few generic
problems with his build/packaging script. I noted these problems and
requested that he fix them before I reviewed any of his packages again.
This is a little different than "no 'good to go' review", this is more
of a "unresolved problems" review.
I don't know if Jari met some bad fate in the mean time, if he didn't
like the request I made to fix some generic problems, or if he has just
been busy, but I don't recall getting a response from him or hearing
from him in general since my reviews.
I really wish that he would fix those generic problems with the build
script (like continually appending the package version number to the
build script in the -src tarball, so you start getting
ploticus-2.11-1-2.11-1-2.11-1.sh if you try to build from the source
package on two occasions). If he did that then most of his packages
would be good to go.
I'll try to contact him again privately, but if he doesn't respond
mid-January we should probably drop his ITPs from the PPL.
