RFS: irssi-scripts - collection of scripts for irssi

Dear Mentors,

I hope somebody might be interested in sponsoring this adoption[1]
which fixes several long outstanding bugs[2]:

Package name        : irssi-scripts
Version             : 11
Upstream Maintainer : Stefan 'tommie' Tomanek <stefan@pico.ruhr.de>
URL                 : http://scripts.irssi.org/
License             : GPLv2 / BSD / Public Domain
Description         : irssi-scripts - collection of scripts for irssi
Long Description    :
 This is a collection of useful scripts for the irssi IRC-client.
 Thus, installing this package only makes sense if you intend to use
 Some individual scripts need other packages in order to work
 properly. Please see the list of Suggests as well as the contained
 README.Debian for additional information.
Closes: 163434 163437 166996 182829 187957 194352 203655 219921 222268 229921
 irssi-scripts (11) unstable; urgency=low
   * New maintainer (Closes: #229921)
   * Update and bugfix-only release
   * debian/control:
     + Removed 'useful' from short description; description rewording
     + Removed 'tar' and 'gzip' from Build-Depends-Indep: as they
       actually are Essential:, as well as removed 'patch' as it will be
       pulled in by build-essential
     + Dependency cleanup, removed xirssi from Depends as it doesn't
       provide the necessary perl modules, removed libnet-vicq-perl as it
       is not part of Debian, also downgraded libwww-perl to Recommends:
     + Bumped Standards:-Version to 3.6.1
   * debian/copyright: Fix url to include ':'
   * debian/overrides: General overhaul, stripping out all unneeded parts
   * debian/patches/: added patches to make some scripts actually
   * debian/rules:
     + Linked sysinfo_irssi.pl to sysinfo_dg.pl as they are identical,
       also added usage information. Thanks, Kai Hendry! (Closes: #182829)
     + Fixed symlink creation (Closes: #187957, thanks to Stephen Rueger!),
       removed text files due to license problems
   * Removed outdated signatures
   * Removed connectcmd.pl, irc_chess.pl, irssiq.pl and mailcount.pl
     as their dependencies are not met in Debian, and added lots of other
     Suggests:, also see README.Debian (Closes: #163434, #163437)
   * Split xmmsinfo.pl into script and module (Closes: #203655)
   * Problem with nickcolor.pl seems to have been solved by perl upgrade
     (Closes: #219921)
   * Changed hardcoded w3m to sensible-browser in openurl.pl, but ncftp and
     mutt remain (Closes: #222268)
   * tab_stop.pl is not a dangling symlink (Closes: #166996)
   * Added nickserv.pl (Closes: #194352)

.deb, .tar.gz, .changes and .dsc (last two signed) can be found at


or on the Sponsoring page[3].

The first RFS[4] didn't recieve much attention[5], so this is a final
re-post. If nobody wants to sponsor this package, I'll continue to
update it for some time until someone steps forward I can hand it over
to and who actually has / doesn't need a sponsor.
All script are written in perl, so I added a CC to debian-perl.

If you are not interested in sponsoring, and the reason for this is
something else but simply not being interested in this package, please
tell me openly or, if preferred, privately.

Thanks for taking the time,
