Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for the new version 1.5-3 of the package
"imagination". I am adopting an orphaned package.

It builds these binary packages:
imagination - DVD slide show maker

The package appears to be lintian clean and builds in a clean sid pbuilder.

The upload would fix these bugs: 543846

The changes are mostly trivial:

imagination (1.5-3) unstable; urgency=low

  * New maintainer. (Closes: #543846)
  * debian/control:
   - Add Vcs-* fields.
   - Extend description.
   - Rename Suggests on *-unstripped-* packages to the new
     *-extra-* packages.
  * Add debian/watch file.
  * debian/copyright: Replace deprecated symbol (C) with ©.
  * Move imagination.{xpm,1} to debian/ and install them from
    debian/rules. Delete debian/manpages/, debian/pixmaps/, and

Please note that the new watch file doesn't currently work, but that
is because of a bug in the sourceforge redirector. See:


The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/i/imagination
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/i/imagination/imagination_1.5-3.dsc

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

Kind regards
 Andrew Starr-Bochicchio

P.S. I am not subscribed to pkg-multimedia-maintainers, please CC me
in replies. This package is not currently in pkg-multimedia, but I
might be interested in maintaining it there if the team is interested
in the package.
