hdparm needs a new maintainer
hdparm is a popular package which has been recently orphaned (see
#816168). It provides an udeb so it might be needed/useful in the context
of debian-installer too. There are multiple reverse dependencies too.
There are 4 RC bugs against it and a new upstream release waiting to be
It would be nice if some people could take over the package and bring it
back to shape. Ccing debian-mentors since new contributors are likely to
follow that list.
The package description is:
Get/set device parameters for Linux SATA/IDE drives.
Primary use is for enabling irq-unmasking and IDE multiplemode.
