What is your definition of "merit", William?  And why does
the current release not have it?

The original plan was based on false assumptions.  Why would you
continue with a plan based on false assumptions?  We now have a
release of lilo with (a) an active upstream maintainer, and (b) no
release critical bugs.  If you simply don't want to be a Debian
package maintainer for lilo anymore, why not ask for volunteers to
take over for you?
