I did not know I could do reviews, while not being a packager.

I just submitted libpar2 (#190091) and gpar2 (#190092), and added you and 
Jason to the CC fields (sorry for the spam: I should have added you to CC 
lists after having set up blockers and depends fields).

I discovered that par2cmdline is no longer maintained. Its code has forked to 
libpar2, which is the base of gpar2. I'll try soon to make par2cmdline 
compile with the new libpar2, and submit it to upstream. However, I still 
maintain request #190071 for par2cmdline. This tool is the only command line 
tool for PAR2 files. Even if its code is obsolete, it still compile and run 
correctly (the upstream par2cmdline package has a test suite, while libpar2 
package not longer has one).
