Dear mentors and pkg-fgfs-crew maintainers,

I am looking for a sponsor for the package "fgrun" into Unstable, perhaps into 

 * Package name    : fgrun
   Version         : 2016.4.0-0.1
   Upstream Author : Frederic Bouvier <fredfgfs01 at free.fr>
 * URL             : https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/fgrun/
 * License         : GPL-2+
   Section         : games

It builds those binary packages:

    fgrun - graphical frontend for running FlightGear

To access further information about this package, please visit the following 


Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command:

    dget -x https://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/f/fgrun/

Alternatively, one can view and download detailed package information on deb-

    dget -x http://debomatic-amd64.debian.net/distribution#unstable/fgrun/

Changes since the last upload:

 fgrun (2016.4.0-0.1) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Non-maintainer upload.
   * New upstream release. (Closes: #839357)
     - Drop patches applied upstream.
     - Refresh patches.
   * Switch upstream to SourceForge.
     - Update corresponding debian/watch file. (Closes: #851845)
   * Bump debhelper compat version to v10.
   * Apply "wrap-and-sort -abst".
   * Update Homepage information on SourceForge.

Detailed explanations:

* This package has a longstanding unfixed RC bug (FTBFS) and fell out of 
Stretch release. With absolutely zero reverse dependency and migration 
blocking, I believe fgrun should be able to enter unstable even though we are 
in freeze now (because it wouldn't affect other packages or Stretch release at 

* A stripped src debdiff is attached here to ease your review. The stripped 
part are translation PO file's updates.

* For new d/watch file: I had a hard time making decisions and finally chose the 
sf.net redirector provided by qa.d.o, which points to flightgear *main* project 
tarballs. Fgrun is now a subproject of flightgear and I really couldn't find a 
better page to parse releases or even git tags. [1] Any suggestion would be 

[1] This should be the correct page but way too hard to write d/watch file:
