  hi Ashar,

    I'm afraid you overlooked the fact that #217571 was merged with
    #276057. the '400 days' figure is a little misleading, since 400
    days passed since the package was *requested*.

    if you have a look at #276057, you'll see that is much more recent
    (October 11th).

    I'm CC'ing #276057 and Evan Prodromou (who filed the ITP), so that
    he becomes aware of this message and perhaps you can coordinate
    efforts (or he may even interested in sponsoring if we didn't have
    time to start packaging).
