Actually Ben is not an official developer yet, I have sponsored his job.
I spoke with him recently about a new upstream version of darxite
so he must be somewhere around ...

Ben, it's time to wake up ! Did you talk with the upstream maintainer
about this problem ? Is this bug corrected with the new upstream 
version ?

Remember that it's your package and it's your responsibility to fix the
bugs and particulary important bugs like this one.

If Ben doesn't react, then we can remove the package.

According to the version number, the last upload was an NMU ... another
NMU wouldn't hurt probably. :-)

Is nobody interested in maintaing it upstream ?

It's used for generating debian CD for m68k.
