Orphaning debmirror


I'm still looking for a new maintainer of debmirror and I'm
considering orphaning the package now if nobody steps up.

Description: Debian partial mirror script, with ftp and package pool support
 This program downloads and maintains a partial local Debian mirror.
 It can mirror any combination of architectures, distributions and
 sections. Files are transferred by ftp, http, hftp or rsync, and package
 pools are fully supported. It also does locking and updates trace files.

I adopted the package when there was no alternative for mirroring and
I needed it. But since then I have switched to reprepro and haven't
used debmirror in at least 3 years. The last upload was 2007 Jan 23rd.

Debmirror is written in perl so you should have some grasp and love
for the language. I hate perl and it certainly hasn't helped the
package. You should also be using debmirror so you notice day to day
problems and care about fixing them.
