Inactive maintainer (package: libguichan0)
I have got a problem with the following maintainer:
FERREIRA Yohann <firstname.lastname@example.org>
He is the offical maintainer of the libguichan0 (and libguichan0-dev)
package but he seems to be inactive.
I asked him for a few weeks, if he could upload libguichan0 in version
0.6.1 to Debian Sid (because my tmw / tmw-music package depends on it),
but he refered me to another person.
Here is the original email (his answer is the part at the top):
You can ask Mickael Koch for that.
Michael Koch <email@example.com>
Have a nice day.

So I asked Michael Koch (his package sponsor) and he has written:
You need to prepare a new new upload which I can sponsor. I cannot just
move packages from experimental to unstable. When its done please send me
the URL to the *.dsc file and I can upload it.
Now I have complained an offical report at the dbd about it:
But without any answer.
I hope someone could solve this problem and if the maintainer will still
be unavailable for his package, I would be ready to be the new
maintainer of the libguichan0 package.
