'''Note''': when writing a report this template should be vigorously edited; as a rule of thumb, every individual point should be replaced with a description of the actual situation in the package in question. The purpose of the report is to convey information to the reviewer, so there is no problem with varying the text in the bullet items, or with adding additional information.

Please be informative, and in particular be thorough in investigating and explaining any weaknesses and problems with the package. The purpose of the report is to show to the reviewer that the package has been properly investigated, and to give the reviewer the information from that investigation, for their decision.

Main Inclusion Report for libffado

Requirements

  1. Availability: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/libf/libffado/; available for i386 and amd64 architectures.

  2. Rationale:

    • provides library for support of FireWire based audio devices

  3. Security:

    • CVE entries: none

    • Secunia history: none

    • Any binaries running as root or suid/sgid ? Any daemons ?
      • do not know

      • do not know

    • Network activity: does it open any port ? no

    • Does it handle incoming network data ? no

    • Does it directly (not through a library) process binary (video, audio, etc) or structured (PDF, etc) data ? no

  4. Quality assurance:

    • In what situations does the package not work out of the box without configuration ? n/a

    • Does the package ask any debconf questions higher than priority 'medium' ? no

    • Debian bugs: (mention any that are particularly relevant, and any showstoppers) None found for libffado, libffado-dbus-server, libffado-mixer-qt4, libffado-tools, libffado-dev or libffado1

    • Maintenance in Debian is frenetic/vigorous/calm/dead ? Maintenances in Debian appears to be vigorous

    • Upstream is frenetic/vigorous/calm/dead ? There appears to be vigorous activity upstream

    • Upstream bug tracker: (mention any particularly relevant or critical) no noticeably relevant or critical bugs

    • Hardware: Does this package deal with hardware and if so how exotic is it ? This package does deal with hardware, but none is exotic

    • Is there a test suite in the upstream source or packaging ? Is it enabled to run in the build ?
  5. UI standards:

    • User-visible strings are internationalized using standard gettext system ?
    • Package with translatable strings builds a PO template during package build ?
    • End-user applications ship a desktop file ?
  6. Standards compliance:

    • FHS, Debian Policy compliance ?

    • Are these all in main ? yes

  8. Maintenance:

    • How much maintenance is this package likely to need ? (Simple packages may largely take care of themselves; complex packages will need dedicated developers paying attention to them.) Little maintenance should be required

    • Who is responsible for monitoring the quality of this package and fixing its bugs ? Are they Ubuntu or Debian developers ? Upstream (FFADO) developers along with Ubuntu developers

    • Who is the package bug contact in Ubuntu? (Needs one if its a nontrivial package which does not fully maintain itself through Debian) Ubuntu Studio developers

  9. Background information:

    • The general purpose and context of the package should be clear from the package's debian/control file. If it isn't then please explain. It should already be clear

    • What do upstream call this software ? Has it had different names in the past ? Upstream calls this software FFADO (Free FireWire Audio Drivers). It was previously know as FreeBoB

  10. Internationalization:

    • Are graphical applications translatable? Do they support gettext?
