Re: RFS: backup2l (updated package - new upstream release) (2nd try)

Dear Joachim,

this is not accurate: the package has been orphaned by the QA team and the
maintainer answered that he is not inactive. He is also the upstream maintainer
and released a new version 12 days ago. He distributes a Debian package on the
SourceForge website.

backup2l (1.5) unstable; urgency=low
  * Add self-test script to each external volume
  * changed FORMAT to truncate fractional parts from time stamps in .list.gz
    files (needed for Debian 5.0/Lenny)
  * backup2l.conf: added some comments on how to use SKIPCOND for certain features
  * fixed false errors with special characters, closes #291423, #305792
  * changed chown invocation ("g:u" instead of "g.u")

I recommend to contact him to see how you can work together. Maybe the main
issue is sponsorship? I do not know if he is aware of the debian-mentors
mailing list.

Have a nice day,
