Please go ahead and fix the bugs. However, you need to retitle
bug #196473 (see http://bugs.debian.org/196473) from O (orphaned) to ITA
(intent to adopt) by sending a mail message to submit@bugs.debian.org
with the following subject:

ITA: epic4-script-splitfire -- the ONLY |<-lame irc script!

and the following two lines in the body of your message:

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

Of course, it is a good idea.

The first step, I would say is to subscribe to the debian-devel list and
post an ITP (intent to package) to that list. See:


for instructions.

You may want to subscribe to debian-devel-spanish as well.
