I am wondering what the deal is with Luca and his packages,
httperf was uploaded once, 3.5 years ago. It has two important and one
normal bug . He has never responded to any bug on httperf.
#215277: httperf: please update libssl dependency (1 year and 239 days)
#308097: httperf errors out when requesting SSL sessions (30 days)
#170060: Please move httperf to main archive (2 years and 198 days)
Of his other packages , his latest upload was late 2003. He has a
number of bugs open  as far back as 6 years ago. Many are
unacknowledged, including two important bugs, one regarding a policy
violation in a package description and another about a filename
collision between a package he maintains and another package.
Just wondering what, if anything, should be done. Personally, I would
be willing to adopt httperf because I would like to see the bugs fixed.
