Bug#697137: RFA: whohas -- query multiple distributions' package archives

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request adoption of whohas, a command line tool that allows you to query
several package collections at once.

Regrettably I no longer have the time nor perl-fu to properly look after
this tool (though I will do so where possible for Wheezy). It needs care from
time to time to keep up with distribution changes, but more importantly it
needs someone to drive upstream development forwards, either through
patches or a fork.

Upstream is pleasant but often unresponsive, though there are occasional
upstream releases. There is no upstream repository, you just get a tarball
from time to time.

I have the packaging and upstream history in git. I'd like to see it go to
a good home, it's a handy tool even though I don't use it so much any more.
