Hello again,

here is an example : bk2site. I am sure that newcommers can learn a lot by
resolving the situation of this package.


Fisrt, learn about Debian's MIA procedures by checking if bk2site's maintainer
is MIA or not. If he is MIA, then there is even more QA work to have fun with
in order to check which of his packages are worth being handed over to the QA
team, and which should better be removed of our archive.

Next, bk2site itself. With its popcon score of 29, one RC bug, and one Unicode
bug, it is a good candidate for removal, but nevertheless, it could be
interesting to document in the request for removal if the Unicode bug is
fixable (there is a patch on SourceForge.net), and if modern broswers still
produce HTML bookmarks files or only JSON ones.

Any volunteer to file write a well-argumented request for removal, or rescue
the package if one things it is worth it?

Have a nice day,
