Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: normal

Dear kind init diversity folks,

I was working on cleaning up the old socklog package some time ago.
With the outcome of the previous GR and Dmitry leaving the project I
did lose the motivation, but the package has been requested a few
times, and I do use it regularly on a number of systems, so it would
be nice to have it in bullseye.

Socklog is a system log daemon designed to integrate in runit, and in
fact written by the creator of runit. It replaces syslogd/klogd for
those who enjoy the zen of runit. This is the best place to find a
sponsor I suppose.

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "socklog":

 * Package name    : socklog
   Version         : 2.1.0+repack-2
   Upstream Author : Gerrit Pape <pape at smarden.org>
 * URL             : http://smarden.org/socklog
 * License         : BSD-3-clause
 * Vcs             : https://salsa.debian.org/debian/socklog
   Section         : admin

It builds those binary packages:

  socklog - system and kernel logging services

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

  dget -x https://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/s/socklog/socklog_2.1.0+repack-2.dsc
