That someone used to be me but, right now, I don't have time to sponsor
or make the upload. That won't last too much longer though.

(Whilst I was sponsoring, I would have automatically taken over this
package if the maintainer became too busy to do it.)

OK, in that case, I'm happy to be a co-maintainer with Hector before
Squeeze.

Don't orphan the package.

I won't need a formal orphaning bug report, Emdebian will cover it.

Jonas, feel free to be Maintainer and add Hector and I as Uploaders
and then, Hector, if you could make an upload as soon as you can? Once
my current real life issues are settled, I'll be happy to have
xf86-input-tslib in my packaging list.

If it's easier to have a pkg- group as maintainer or we could use the
current Maintainer of dpkg-cross:
http://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=debian-embedded@lists.debian.org

At some point, I'd like to rationalise the situation with tslib so that
default GTK+ installations don't need tslib installed unless a
touchscreen is available. Once that's done, tslib can also come into
the debian-embedded fold.

Jonas, Hector, when you look at xf86-input-tslib, just have a look at
the Ubuntu patches and see what needs to be done with those - I meant
to do that before all this real life stuff came up.
