As an aside, I don't have the need, as I use bc, but I'm always up for
packaging a mature program which just suits someone better.

I'd be willing to "maintain" the package except for looking for new
releases / bugfix releases[1]. I just don't have the time to look. So,
if you are willing to notify me of new releases / security related
problems / patches etc., I'd be willing.

Oh, I also am willing to share the duty and make you and dcr
maintainers, and coach you along if it's not a simple version update
of e.g. "make '.4' a '.5'" in one single place in the .spec ;)

You're on... The package is mature and the updating should be minimal, but I know how 'tedious' maintaining packages can be. I have a couple for Arch and when gcc changes an breaks everything, even simple packages that should have 'minimal' update needs can become huge pains for the short period of time it takes to figure out what broke. But with calc, even with potential gcc changes, it won't be near as bad or likely to break as other packages.

I have an OBS page that I haven't visited in some time... If you have it building in yours, then I guess we can push it from there. I've never pushed a package to factory before, but Greg's howto earlier in this thread seems to lay it out very well. I've looked at the .spec file and it looks great. I don't see anything off-hand that needs changing, I think we can just do whatever is needed to push it to factory as is.

The only thing I don't know is if:

Group: Productivity/Scientific/Math

is the correct Group, but it looks like where it should be.

dnh, I'm 'drankinatty' on OBS, I just checked and I still have a good login there. So in the future, if needed, you can just associate me with the calc project.. although I'm not sure how you do that :)
