JFTR, I'm at 3.1.6.

The whole situation reminds me of wine, where Debian shipped the same
outdated version for multiple releases.

Even downstream distributions are suffering:


I'd say get some devs behind this, call the package netatalk3 and ship
it in parallel. I had it running for months, upstream had worked on it
for years, it's not that this is bleeding edge or untested.

jessie without netatalk3 would be embarrassing at best, but more
importantly, it would be frustrating for everyone who wants to use their
Linux file servers as a time machine backup.

CC debian-devel for additional momentum. Please stop CCing this bug in
case this turns into another bike shedding discussions on the ML.
