Bug#329425: RFA: psutils -- A collection of PostScript document handling utilities

Package: wnpp

I'd like to give up maintainership of psutils.

As it stands now, there hasn't been any upstream work on it in a long
time, and my impression from the last time I spoke with the author was
that he wasn't sure when he might be able to work on it heavily again.

It also looks like fixing a number of the bugs may require someone
with more postscript expertise than I plan to acquire anytime soon.

I have also wondered a bit about the current status of the domain.  Is
psutils still needed, or are there better, more actively pursued
alternatives now?  For example, can similar functionality be provided
by convenience wrappers around ghostscript, as suggested in #159888?
I don't know, but I thought perhaps someone else might.
