Dear multimedia team members,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "advene".

  Package name    : advene
  Version         : 0.44
  Upstream Author : olivier.aubert at liris.cnrs.fr
  URL             : http://www.advene.org/
  License         : GPLv2
  Section         : video

It builds the binary package:
advene     - Annotate DVDs, Exchange on the Net

[excerpt from the Description:]
 The cross-platform Advene application allows users to easily
 create comments and analyses of video documents, through the
 definition of time-aligned annotations and their mobilisation
 into automatically-generated or user-written comment views (HTML
 documents). Annotations can also be used to modify the rendition
 of the audiovisual document, thus providing virtual montage,
 captioning, navigation... capabilities. Users can exchange their
 comments/analyses in the form of Advene packages, independently from
 the video itself.

I am the main author of this (pygtk + gstreamer based) software. I use
Debian as the main development platform. I have been building my
own .deb packages since the beginning of the project and would really
like to make it more easily available to end users. 
It is currently packaged in native (3.0) format, since I was generating
the packages myself, but I am ready, if someone is interested in
sponsoring the package, to fix the Debian packaging in order to conform
with the multimedia team packaging guidelines.

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/a/advene
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- dget

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me, and mentored me
to improve its packaging.

Kind regards
 Olivier Aubert
