help requested [firstname.lastname@example.org: Re: Bug#366146: libfann: new upstream release includes debian packaging]
According to the bug report, the upstream author of this package wants help. As you can see
in the message below, upstream can take care of the actual packaging. However, he needs help
on a couple of fine points of the package. Also, it seems as if he is in need of a new
sponsor to get this package actually updated. I can't sponsor it myself since I'm not a DD.

The 2.0.0 package was made and uploaded, but it was rejected due to some
problems with the versioning. I was not complete sure how to alter the
package so that it could be accepted, and due to various circumstances a new
package was not made at that point.
Later on I tried to contact the sponsor for the package, in order to get his
help, but with no luck. If anyone is interested in sponsoring the package
and help creating the new package, please let me know.
