What happened to it ? Can anyone say why it was deleted ? We appear
not to have any source or diffs either.
If the package maintainer (the most recent maintainer I have for this
is Bdale Garbee <firstname.lastname@example.org>) would like to reupload their latest
package they should do so.
Otherwise we'll be asking for someone who blew a CD-writeable recently
to send us the diffs (we can make do with just the debian diff, as we
can apply it to a recent GNU source package).
