There are a few bugs open, marked as "help needed" it would be nice if
anybody would help with those, instead of ranting.

I had multiple persons offering to take over the project and nobody
contributed any work before.

I actually have two new people supporting my in the project (upstream) and i
am quite responsive to them. Because they help.

Besides that, my plan is to have an 1.65 upstream release which is basically
the Debian version (since that version is quite ok, must of the open bugs
are kernel/technology related. As you can read in the archives the last few
attempts to help me with those ended with the inresponsiveness of net
developers (those consider net-tools obsolted by iproute).
