you are leaving me somewhat puzzled. The QA is listed as the current
maintainer, but only to keep doing what has been left by others, so I
tend to understand what the QA is doing. Instead, we should work on
getting Etienne towards a DM status so the questions for sponsoring
will be a thing of the past.
Now that I have replied I am also somewhat caught as a candidate to
sponsor you. However, I feel somewhat overwhelmed with things I need
to do that I dare to forward your RFS to the Debian Science list.
mn-fit is based on the CERNLIB and as such seems like a perfect place
to become associated with Debian Science. Is there anyone sufficiently
close to this package to help out? Etienne, if there is noone contacting
you, then please PM me again and I sponsor you.
