Send "Intent to Package" to Debian
I plan to send this "Intent to Package" to Debian in the next days, which marks the very first step to get Briar into Debian. Before doing so, I'd appreciate any comments by others. There's also python-briar-wrapper#17 (closed) and briar-debian#2 (closed).
Subject: ITP: briar-gtk -- Desktop and mobile client for Briar p2p messaging Package: wnpp Owner: Nico Alt <email@example.com> Severity: wishlist * Package name : briar-gtk Version : 0.1.0 Upstream Author : Nico Alt <firstname.lastname@example.org> * URL : https://code.briarproject.org/briar/briar-gtk * License : AGPLv3 Programming Lang: Python Description : Desktop and mobile client for Briar p2p messaging Briar is a messaging app designed for activists, journalists, and anyone else who needs a safe, easy and robust way to communicate. Unlike traditional messaging apps, Briar doesn't rely on a central server - messages are synchronized directly between the users' devices. If the internet's down, Briar can sync via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, keeping the information flowing in a crisis. If the internet's up, Briar can sync via the Tor network, protecting users and their relationships from surveillance. This package contains the GTK client that uses python3-briar-wrapper to access the REST API exposed by briar-headless. Briar GTK is already packaged according to DFSG, but it depends on briar-headless which can't be build with Debian packages due to Kotlin: https://code.briarproject.org/briar/briar-gtk/-/tree/main/debian I develop and use Briar GTK myself with support by other core developers of the Briar Project. I plan to maintain this project and its dependencies in Debian, but I'm always open to and appreciating any help by potential co-maintainers. Additionally, I'm looking for a sponsor.
