Re: Bug#87237: #87237: O: macgate -- Appletalk-IP gateway

yes, you are very correct.

what happened here is that the original maintainer issued a RFA,
this RFA has been renamed to an ITA by
Sebastian Rittau <srittau@jroger.in-berlin.de> who then adopted it.

all that is correct. the flaw of the original maintaner was to not
change the Maintainer: field of the packages he was willing to
orphan to "Debian QA Group <...>" so he continued to receive all the
bugs reports regarding the orphaned package. then, thinking of still
being the maintainer, he decided to definitely orphan the package
*issuin* a new bug against wnpp intead of *renamin* the older RFA
(which in the meanwhile becamed an ITA) to O:.

what i did was to delete the new O: bug and leave opened the older
ITA. if you'll look in all the wnpp's bugs you still see the older ITA.

that is all the stroy.

setting this little mess (and another like this) i made another a little
bigger but it should be solved now.

i hope to have succesfully explained the work

thanks and sorry for the fuss
