Bug#390744: O: publib -- library of miscellaneous C functions
I have just orphaned (by doing an upload setting the maintainer to QA)
the publib source package (producing the publib-dev binary package). I'm
also freezing my upstream development. I haven't really used the code
for many years, and every time someone else does, they find embarrassing
If anyone wants to adopt the Debian package, they might want to consider
adopting it upstream as well.
I've CCd (I hope) the maintainers of the two packages that are reverse
build dependencies of publib-dev (there's a third, liwc, but I'm the
maintainer of that, except I'm orphaning that, too).
The package description is:
This library contains functions for memory allocation, bit arrays,
comparing standard C types for qsort and bsearch, error messages,
filenames, hash tables, integer sets, log files, NNTP, priority queues,
normal queues, editor buffers, stacks, and strings.
