The package is team-maintained but none of the maintainers have time to
take care of Roundcube. Hence, the removal from Jessie. The main
difficulty is to handle the 0.9.5 to 1.x upgrade where the configuration
files change.

It is unlikely anything will happen until a new maintainer steps in the
team. I have written this just today:


The upload in unstable without being in the VCS is just that I don't
want to spend unecessary time to understand how to handle correctly the
exclusion of (unused) non-DFSG files with gbp. Maybe that's just a
matter of using --uscan. Maybe not.
Each module should do one thing well.
