Bug#844611: O: debian-installer-launcher -- Debian Installer desktop launcher

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal


Following discussion with #debian-live and #debian-boot on IRC, I am orphaning
this package. This will no longer be used in the official live builds as it
tends to give bad user experience and doesn't get the levels of testing it
really needs.

I am not filing an RM bug at this time, as I believe there may be derivatives
that like this package and I'd like to give them a chance to take over
maintainence of the package.

This is a native package to Debian, not a package of upstream sources,
and so this package will take more time and effort to maintain than
other packages in Debian. Please be aware of this before taking
responsibility for it.

If you want to be the new maintainer, please see
http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/index.html#howto-o for detailed
instructions how to adopt a package properly.

The Debian Live team is very happy for development to continue within
the team, we just do not currently have anyone with enough time
available to look after this package and maintain its quality to a high

If you'd like to speak to the team, please contact
debian-live@lists.debian.org or join #debian-live on irc.debian.org.
