Perfect. I removed the remainings from SVN. Usually I drop a
README.status but this package was never released so nobody will really
miss it there. :-)

Just a note: Its perfectly correct to teach newcomers the right
behaviour to ITP soon. There is no point in sticking to my personal
decision to ITP quite late in the packaging process.

I think there is not much left. I'd rather start with the new upstream
version (which is not reported by d/watch since letters in "beta" are not
checked for - which might be right or wrong depending from your decision
whether we intend to package those beta version or not).
Afif, thanks for volunteering to mentor.
Have fun with MoM both
