I am also a happy user of doc-central and I am not saying that it should be
removed by all means. However, if it is de facto abandonned, the Project should
seek for a long term solution since it is a native package (i.e. it has not
upstream apart from Debian itself.)

This package was NMUed in Lenny and needs to be NMUed for Squeeze. If we do not
want to rely on somebody to NMU it in Squeeze+1, I think it needs to be
maintained or removed. I would be most happy if it would be maintained,
therefore I have CCed the person who seems to care most for this package.

If you NMU this package, may I suggest to orphan it and put it in collab-maint?
I offer to do the work if you like the idea (svn or git, just let me know).
