I'm unsure that I'd be able to give these packages all the
attention they deserve, but at the very least, I guess that I'd
be able to keep them free of (major) bugs for a while.
(Although I have a few ideas regarding the packages, I'm unsure
if I'd be able to implement them myself.) That said, I see that
Ioan Rogers has recently became active on the project ?
Also, I've checked libprophet-perl, and now see that 0.750
(which, AIUI, Closes: #576628, #593134, #681814 = #613833) was
merged into the Debian packaging repository . I wonder if
there were any specific reasons not to upload the updated
package back then (some 14 months ago)?
I hope to prepare and test the updated packages by the weekend.
Should I succeed, I'll request maintainership on the prophet and
PS. BTW, is this due to a specific reason, or a convention, that the
upstream Git change history is “flattened” within the Debian
FSF associate member #7257
