This is a package that I brought to Debian way back when I joined up. I would really like a maintainer for it so I can begin to function as the upstream developer. The outstanding parser bug against this package hasn't been fixed because the only good way to fix it is to rebuild the parser.

This is a major project for a package maintainer, as the packaging issues keep getting in the way of the big project...

Anyway, if Patrick is still out there, and still interested, drop me a line and let's talk.

Waiting is,
