Hmm, perhaps pine-tracker should be removed from non-free then and
alpine should grow some transition packages for lenny? Have you
discussed this with the pine/pine-tracker maintainer?

The idea so far has been that until alpine reaches the stability of pine and the features of the Debian pine packages (which include some patches that I'm talking to the maintainers of for alpine support and licensing permission), we would keep both alpine and pine. I haven't talked about transition packages because this step hasn't come yet, but I hope we will talk about that soon.

I'm definitely working on the above-mentioned issues with alpine, and many Debianites have helpfully filed Debian bugs against my package that have gone to help upstream improve the program.

P.S. I got your note about http://www.debian.org/MailingLists/#codeofconduct , specifically if to "reply to all" or just the list. Thanks for the clear link!
