Re: orphaning packages

Due to the fact that I'm no longer interested in dealing with package
sponsorship issues anymore, I'm orphaning my packages.

They are:

* devmapper
* lvm2
Both important packages, devmapper is used by evms and lvm2, and lilo
depends upon it.  Matt or Patrick, I would assume one (or both) of you
would want it.  Patrick, you're already an lvm2 co-maintainer; should I
should just bump you up to maintainer?

* firestring
* firedns
* messagewall
Firestring and firedns are both very simple libraries (although a few
versions behind).  No outstanding bugs exist.  Messagewall is a very
useful daemon that sits in front of your SMTP server, filtering spam,
virus, and other such nastiness.  Upstream is working on a new version
(I try to bug him about it whenever I see him), but the current version
is over a year old.  There's also a rewrite planned, w/ things like
threading and pam auth; I don't know where that stands atm.

* keepalived
This daemon handles both VRRP failover and LVS clustering.  It's a
highly useful package, up-to-date and w/ no outstanding bugs.

Since we use this daemon at work a lot, I will take the package.
Expect an upload until the end of the week.


Yours sincerly
