Re: unrar version confusion

Hi, all

I read all comments, but I didnt understood what I need to do.
Ola Lundqvist is my sponsor, but if Jeroen or other could upload , I will be grateful, because Ola is very busyed.

Can I have 2 sponsors ?

Jose Carlos

I'm the (previous) maintainer of unrar. Jose Carlos Medeiros has offered to
adopt it.

I support your suggestions of renaming. I also think there should be an
unrar implementation in the next Debian stable. Currently there is none.
(The Debian project distributes a non-free unrar from its servers, but it's
not part of Debian.)

I've kept unrar intentionally out of sarge because of incompability
problems. Changing the package name and fixing rest of the bugs (I've sent
some patches) would allow it go in.

Once the free unrar matured enough, it can probably ultimately replace
unrar (again), but until that time, I really do believe the free unrar
should be named differently until that point is reached. I offer my
assistance to get this happening again because of what I've done to
unstable at the moment.

Jose, have you got any comments? Have you got a sponsor? Jeroen, could you
sponsor Jose if needed?
