Maybe some spamfilter is eating it? I dunno.
I don't know either. Let's simply cc the bugreport and move on :-)
So.. what's the status? Waiting on wxWidgets? I see that someone raised an intent to package that too, but then didn't do anything about it.http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=492896
The 0.2 release was apparently coded specifically for 32-bit x86, and even there spew lots of warnings regarding signed/unsigned int then failed to complete compilation.
That, with a security-sensitive tool, discouraged me somewhat, and I decided to simply let it hang for a while and look if perhaps upstream code then had matured some. And if not then drop packaging it.
Now, thanks to your asking about it, I have taken another look. There is a newer upstream release, but still it fails (for me) to build it.
If you are interested not only in seeing this package appear for you to use it, but consider helping out packaging it, you are most welcome to help! Or to take over, if you prefer working alone (or for some reason dislike working with me).
I have uploaded my preliminary work for public consumption here: git://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/bitcoin
