Dear Debian Tcl/Tk'lers!
As announced quite some time ago, I prepared a new Debian package for
review and upload (see ITP #766486). NSF/NX/XOTcl2 are the successors of
The actual initial (non-beta) release of NSF/NX/XOTcl2 is planned for
the next couple of days (before or on Oct 26th). To speed up the overall
process, I prepared the source package "nsf" with a current SCM snapshot
(2.0.0~b6) for review.
Once reviewed and fixed, switching to the then available release sources
will be straight forward.
I used git-buildpackage (in a standard layout: debian/sid, upstream,
pristine-tar). For the review, I published the source-package repo to
The packages are lintian clean, I followed the Debian Tcl/Tk policy
0.3.0, and tested the installation of the debs.
I kindly ask for your reviews and the promotion of the package.
That said, do you see any chance of landing before the Jessie deadline?
I know, the ITP queues are extensive, but still, I was hoping naive as I

Description : The Next Scripting Framework (for short: NSF) is an
infrastructure for creating object-oriented scripting languages based on
Tcl. See http://next-scripting.org/.
The Next Scripting Framework (for short: NSF) is an infrastructure for
creating object-oriented scripting languages based on Tcl. This
package provides two ready-made object-orientated extensions for Tcl
based on NSF: Next Scripting Language (NX, pronounced "next") and
Extended Object Tcl version 2 (XOTcl2, pronounced "exotickle").
NSF and the two languages are direct successors of XOTcl
(http://www.xotcl.org/), which is actively maintained as a Debian
package (jointly with the Debian Tcl/Tk packaging team).
NSF/NX, NSF/XOTcl2 and applications written using them are deployed in
and along with production-grade software systems, such as Learn at WU
(http://learn.wu.ac.at/), OpenACS (http://openacs.org/), and
I plan to maintain the NSF Debian package inside the Debian Tcl/Tk
packaging team. In this context, I am already responsible for two other
