Orphaning several accessibility packages
I orphan and offer for adoption several accessibility packages:
- On behalf of Boris Dušek, the current sponsored maintainer, I claim
speech-dispatcher officially orphaned (WNPP bug #730983).
speech-dispatcher is an important package and someone should really
take it and maintain it properly.
I'm not sure about the state of speech-dispatcher Debian git
repository; could someone familiar with it upload the package with
maintainer set to Debian QA Group (unless somebody takes the package),
- I orphan festival-freebsoft-utils (WNPP bug #730985). Unless someone
takes it I'll upload an officially orphaned package soon.
The package is necessary to make Speech Dispatcher work with
Festival. Someone should take it, it's easy to maintain and I can
provide limited upstream support.
- I orphan sound-icons (WNPP bug #730987). The package is trivial to
maintain but I nevertheless fail to do it properly, so the package
should be taken by a better maintainer. Unless someone takes it I'll
upload an officially orphaned package soon.
- On behalf of Boris Dušek and myself, I offer all Czech Festival voices
(festvox-czech-ph -- bug #730988, festvox-czech-dita -- bug #730989,
festvox-czech-krb -- bug #730991, festvox-czech-machac -- bug #730990)
as well as festival-czech package (WNPP bug #730997) for adoption.
They are easy to maintain. I understand there aren't many maintainers
with interest in Czech speech synthesis around, so I'll try to
continue maintaining the packages if nobody wants them, but I'd like
to find a better maintainer for them.
