Andreas has not volunteered to act as a sponsor for MEME, though I have
not ever heard him say "no" if a package fits into Debian-Med. Andreas
is a fantastic sponsor, very knowledgeable and patient. This package and
the sponsor would be a perfect fit for an interested newbie.

Being swamped myself for the next two months, I might jump at it later
this year if nobody else snaps it up.

Best regards and many thanks to Andreas
