Hi mentors,

I'm looking for a new sponsor for kboincspy[1], a monitoring utility for the 
BOINC client. Former uploads of kboincspy were sponsored by Lucas Wall, whom 
I want to thank for his help in the past.

I've prepared a new revision, 0.9.1-4, which I'd like to get uploaded. So if 
you are an interested sponsor, please have a look at my package, which is 
available here:


and here is the changelog entry:

 kboincspy (0.9.1-4) unstable; urgency=low
   * Added Russian translation (ru.po) from upstream's SVN.
   * debian/manpages/kboincspy.xml:
     - Fixed typo and added more generic options.
     - Removed &lt and &gt before and after <email> elements because
       docbook2x-man adds those now itself.
     - Made <ulink> elements empty if their content was the same as the
       content of their url attribute.
   * debian/control.in:
     - Removed nvidia-glx from Build-Conflicts because #208198 was fixed in
       nvidia-graphics-drivers/1.0.8774-4 but etch has 1.0.8776-4.
     - Added XS-Vcs-Svn and -Browser fields to the source stanza.
     - Set "Debian BOINC Maintainers 
<pkg-boinc-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org>"
       as Maintainer and moved myself to Uploaders.
     - Replaced ${Source-Version} with ${binary:Version} because the former
       variable is now deprecated.
   * debian/copyright:
     - Added copyright note about the Debian packaging.
     - Removed full text of the GFDL and added a pointer to
   * debian/watch:
     - Use a more strict regex that does not match KBoincSpy Mini tarballs.
   * Switched patch system from simple-patchsys to quilt.
   * Bumped debhelper compatibility level from 4 to 5 since this is the
     current recommended level.

Thanks in advance,
