Does it make sense to package such an old version? Yes it is the most recent version. I believe it does make sense to package current version (even though not recently released) if you need the functionality it provides. As far as I'm aware there are no alternatives whatsoever. Besides I have impression that there were no updates since 2009 because it still works pretty well. It's not so rare to have pretty useful software that wasn't updated for few years. I've made the package because I'm using it at the moment and it would be silly to bury the effort that may be useful for someone else. Gentoo and Fedora are already shipping seekwatcher. IMHO it is quite useful. To certain degree I share your concerns for software that got no upstream updates lately. Is it dead? I don't know. I reckon we'll find out till release of Jessie. The package appears to be ready so you're very welcome to try it. -- Regards, Dmitry.
