Poll: Anybody using debpool?



DebPool is a Debian package archiver written in Perl by Joel Aelwyn 
<fenton@debian.org>. Like mini-dinstall it's a lightweight replacement 
for "the real deal" that manages Debian's package archive, but unlike 
mini-dinstall it uses a full pool layout. The current version is 0.2.3 and 
it's in the experimental distribution.

Since I liked it very much I immediately started adding and rewriting code and 
submitting my suggestions for improvement to the BTS, but unfortunately Joel 
seems to be gone; he hasn't uploaded anything or commented on any bugs for 
over eight months. I don't want debpool to die, especially not with all the 
hours I spent on it...

I could of course fork it (except that it wouldn't really be a fork since I'd 
continue in the same general direction, and also it isn't much of a fork 
unless the original branch continues to grow), but first I'd like to ask if 
anyone else has an interest in this package and could think of cooperating 
with me.
