Bug#386269: RFH: tex4ht -- LaTeX and TeX for Hypertext

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request assistance with maintaining the tex4ht and tex4ht-common
packages (which are generated out of the same source package).

The package description is:
 TeX4ht is a highly configurable TeX-based authoring system for producing
 hypertext. It interacts with TeX-based applications through style files and
 postprocessors, leaving the processing of the source files to the native TeX
 compiler. Consequently, TeX4ht can handle the features of TeX-based systems
 in general, and of LaTeX in particular.
 TeX4ht can be used both for authoring HTML using TeX/LaTeX input files, or
 for converting existing TeX input files (in any format) into HTML, with
 (usually) only minor modifications.  Other varieties of hypertext can also be
 produced, including XML, XHTML, MathML and the Openoffice.org format of XML.
 There are a number of different ways to convert glyphs and graphics
 in the DVI files into PNG, GIF or JPEG. The default is to use dvipng.
 Alternatives using ghostscript, imagemagick, netpbm and/or pstoedit are
 also possible.

Expertise required from co-maintainer: 

Familiarity with TeX4ht :)
Familiarity with Java.
Familiarity with openoffice use in conjunction with TeX4ht.

Explanation of assistance required:

I am currently comfortable with the TeX aspects of the package as well
as most aspects of image conversion. However, I have no familiarity
with Java. A number of Java based features in connection with
speech output are being added upstream.

Another problem is that I primarily use the package for conversion to
HTML, XHTML, XML whereas a number of users for the openoffice output
have emerged and I am unable to understand/deal with the bugs that
they report.

Manner of co-operation:

I would be comfortable with co-maintaining with e-mail for
discussions. At a pinch I could learn to use one of the SCM-based
tools as well.
