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 briar-gtk#72 (closed) and briar-debian#2 (closed).
Subject: ITP: python3-briar-wrapper -- Wrapper around the Briar Headless REST API Package: wnpp Owner: Nico Alt <email@example.com> Severity: wishlist * Package name : python3-briar-wrapper Version : 0.0.4 Upstream Author : Nico Alt <firstname.lastname@example.org> * URL : https://code.briarproject.org/briar/python-briar-wrapper * License : AGPLv3 Programming Lang: Python Description : Wrapper around the Briar Headless REST API 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 Python wrapper around the REST API exposed by briar-headless. It is used by briar-gtk and in future might also be used in briar_repl , a commandline client for Briar. 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/python-briar-wrapper/-/tree/main/debian I develop and use briar_wrapper 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. : https://code.briarproject.org/fphemeral/briar_repl
