Hi collegues,

As you know, Crosswire supports the GoBible and GoBibleCreator software.

Bibledit-Gtk uses the GoBibleCreator from Crosswire so that it is able
to build Bibles that can be viewed on cell phones that run mobile Java.

I have created a tarball of the GoBibleCreator software, and uploaded it
to http://code.google.com/p/gobible/.
It can be seen here:
It is the only .tar.gz file in the listing.

Next a Debian package was created from that tarball. Many hours went
into that, because I wanted to follow Debian policy, and get the package
Lintian clean. Well, it now follows the policy, and is cleaner than
Lintian clean. Even the watch file works.

You would make me so grateful if you would review the package, and then
upload it. I've added myself to the Uploaders field in debian/control.
The purpose of this is that I may maintain this in future, once my GnuPG
key is in the Debian keyring. The Maintainer field is set as Debian
Crosswire Packaging Team. See here:

Maintainer: Debian Crosswire Packaging Team
<pkg-crosswire-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org>
Uploaders: Jonathan Marsden <jmarsden at fastmail.fm>,
 Daniel Glassey <wdg at debian.org>,
 Dmitrijs Ledkovs <dmitrij.ledkov at ubuntu.com>,
 Teus Benschop <teusjannette at gmail.com>

If the maintainer field, or the uploaders field are not appropriate, you
will feel free to update this.

Here is a script that downloads the package to your system, and does
some basic checks:

mkdir check_package_teus
cd check_package_teus
bzr checkout lp:~pkgcrosswire/gobiblecreator/debian/
cd debian
cd gobiblecreator-2.4.1
debuild -S

Guidelines for reviewers are here:

The package is already in mentors.debian.net, see here:

It builds cleanly in a pbuilder environment. This is just an extra
quality check.

In His service,
