Well, there was an upload in July 2008 (haskell-pcre-light) and an ITP
filed on mid Nov 2008 (#505924), with a proposed package git repo and
on his people.d.o page. The latter seems have faced a re-org in late
Jan 2009, so I think Recai might still be active (and not MIA in the
Debian sense, I'd say)

Mh, I think this kind of pings are usually better done on the "new
upstream release" bug (#499864), so there's a public trace to check :)

Given that, I've added him in the loop: Recai, are you still
interested in pandoc? If yes, then I'd suggest to update it asap, so
that people will be happy :) if not, then please orphan it (along with
other packages if you don't care about them anymore) so that someone
else can step in.

Thanks all,
