Re: pre-MIA quest for Patrick Winnertz (winnie-at-d.o)
I have been trying to get hold of Patrick too, and succeeded in getting
hold of him ~ 1 day ago. He's still active, just very busy. I hope to
get a longer chat with him over the coming days with respect to lmms
specifically, but I'll mention this discussion too.

I'm not sure but I don't think that the MIA team would orphan italc, because
Patrick Winnertz is not MIA.
It would be nice to get some feedback from Patrick Winnertz about this.
First priority is to fix the FTBFS bug 671489. If you intend to update italc
to the newest upstream release, then please retitle bug 672636 to an intention
