I suspect you got the wrong impression, as I haven't seen anyone
mentioning on dda that they were going to remove abiword. Not qcad
I fail to see how one can ignore the fact that some developers are
busy, with debian related or non-debian related things, and that a
mail telling them that one of their packages are likely to give these
developers a heads up and get them to increase the priority on the
packages in question. This work. I've sent emails to the maintainers
of packages I care about when they were scheduled for removal, and
several ov these thanked me for the warning and told me they would
look into the case.
