I am an active user of the libhtml-mason-perl package, and am quite
interested in seeing it continue to progress in Debian.
Unfortunately, as outlined in my message to debian-qa in January, the
package appears to have been abandoned, and all attempts to contact the
package maintainer have failed.
I am not yet a Debian Developer, but I am interested in pursuing the
path of becoming one. I have actively provided feedback of numerous
Debian packages in the form of bug reports (including half of the
outstanding libhtml-mason-perl bug reports), and I have already packaged
the new upstream release of libhtml-mason-perl.
I discussed the matter with Joshua Kwan, who recommended that I send
this email, asking whether or not it would be acceptable for me to
hijack the abandoned libhtml-mason-perl package.
Any feedback/advise would be appreciated.
