Also note that GPP1 was in 2009 and there has been no "official" release
since then. (Perhaps a sufficiently dedicated maintainer would find
something resembling a release by trawling through the forums, but I'm
not going to do that.)
Given Tremulous' history of security vulnerabilities and apparent lack
of upstream interest in point releases, I don't think Tremulous should
be in wheezy without an active maintainer. If nobody has adopted it
within a month I will ask for it to be removed.
