If absolutely nobody else within the Debian games team wants to take
over maintenance of warsow, I'd be willing to do so myself, although I
won't have enough spare time until mid-December. Eh, on second
thought, I might not have enough time then either, so please feel free
to remove warsow from sid; I'll find time to upload a new package
eventually, some time before the freeze date next June. If somebody
steps in before then, that'd be great. :)
