Instead of doing huge threads cutting hairs in four pieces about
whatever vote we should have in order to be sure not releasing lenny
in the upcoming year, isn't there *really* someone in the crowd who
would volunteer to maintain bts-link?

As a package maintainer with a few upstreams having their own bugzilla
(more particularly samba), bts-link has been an incredibly useful tool
for me.

Everybody know that *I* am personnally completely unable to maintain
such beast but I know there are certainly many people among DD who

So, pretty please, someone volunteer. Maintaining bts-link even
deserves abandoning some package maintainance or whatever. We really
need it.

I think that the proposal made by Christoph Berg is, as of now, the
most reasonable. Maybe it could be discussed during the upcoming
Extremadura session (Nov 26-30) which is meant to be, among other, a
QA session ?

Actually, it could be a good idea for you to attend, Pierre....but for
what I know of your usual schedule, that might be hard to arrange.
