Re: Bug#634015: Proposition to team-maintain m2crypto.

Hi Charles,

Sorry for the delay, I was away for a while. I have to admit, I have not paid
much attention to m2crypto lately, so if you or anybody else wants to pick it
up I would not mind at all. If there are no volunteers I'll have a look at the
bug reports and upload a new version in the next week or two.
