Re: Bug#401489: RFA: perl-tk -- Perl module providing the Tk graphics library.
What does the debian-perl list think? Should we take it for the group? I
need this for one of my packages but I am not a perl guru by any means.

The last release dates back to April 11, 2004. Is upstream still active?
comp.lang.perl.tk and email@example.com are still active. Someone
in comp.lang.perl.tk has released a patch set for the current upstream
release. The upstream maintainer recently passed away but there are
talks of continuing the Perl/Tk development. I'm not currently
packaging anything that requires Perl/Tk and have lost interest in
maintaining it for Debian. Hopefully someone will adopt the package so
it doesn't have to be orphaned.
