non-interesting doesn't mean uncared about. Frequently it includes sweet

No real bugs to speak of.

As for this little tool, I have a release in ftp://dvdeug.dhis.org
that would update it to the latest policy and close the only bug
on it, if any one wants to upload it, or sponsor me (I am in 
new-maintainers now.)
