Bug#736338: drawmap: New upstream version available

Package: drawmap
Severity: minor


I did some investigation about packages which were not uploaded a long
time by the according team.  For Debian GIS it is drawmap (last upload
2007-05-18).  I'd regard the package in bad shape since it mentions a
homepage which just throws 404, no Vcs URLs are specified (I did not
checked whether it really is not in Vcs) and it has long standing open
bugs.  In Debian Med I would simply upgrade the packaging, inject it
into Vcs and check for new upstream.  I have found a slightly newer
upstream here:


My questions are:

  - Does anybody know a newer version?
  - Has this probably orphaned upstream program some use these days
    and should we as in Debian GIS team care for this.

If the later question is answered with "yes" (and perhaps some reasons
for this yes are given) I would volunteer to move the packaging into
Debian GIS Git, update to the latest upstream version and upgrade the
packaging to the rules of Debian GIS policy.

Any further comments?

Kind regards
