I posted recently about orphaning it on -devel and got a few
answers but nobody adopted it yet. I consider this package important for
debian but feel that I lack sgml and TeX knowledge to package it.

fixed in the new upstream release. Unfortunately I am unable to get the
last release to produce any output file. The upstream author is helpful
but I am sure I am missing something obvious.
If you want to adopt it, go forward and upload the current package after
closing this RFA bug and changing the maintainer address.
