Dear mentors,

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

* Package name    : deadbeef
  Version         : 0.4.4-1
  Upstream Author : Alexey Yakovenko <waker at users.sourceforge.net>
* URL             : http://sf.net/projects/deadbeef
* License         : Mostly GPL-2+ and LGPL-2+
  Section         : sound

It builds these binary packages:
 deadbeef   - Ultimate Music Player For GNU/Linux
 deadbeef-plugins - Plugins for DeaDBeeF music player
 deadbeef-plugins-dev - Plugins for DeaDBeeF music player (development 

The package appears to be lintian clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 576975 (ITP)

I've taken the ownership of the ITP bug for deadbeef, beacause it is a very
nice music player (I've been using it for a while) and the old owner do not 
have time anymore. I'm mostly done with the packaging stuff, but I have 
some concerns about the fact that it is shipped with many libraries which 
are already present in the Debian repository (I'm talking with the upstream
author about this).

I would also love to have some help in order to finish the work. 
Could someone create a repository, so that other people can join me in this?

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

Kind regards
 Alessandro Ghedini
