Sorry for the late reply, and thanks for the ping Niels. Apparently I
need to refine my gmail filters, your original mail got hidden away
deep in a folder. Excuses, excuses, excuses.....
I'd be happy to help co-maintain this package with you if you'd like.
Unfortunately, I am not a Debian Developer myself. I maintain my
packages through sponsorship, so I can't sponsor it myself. I don't
have time to do a thorough review of the package right now. Today is a
holiday here in the States. Though, any potential sponsor shouldn't
block on me. If we feel the need to Replace the parcellite package
with clipit this can be done in a future upload.
My one question would be, have you tried to contact parcellite's
upstream maintainer? It seems like he might be willing to hand over
the parcellite sourceforge project. Though clipit is a better name.
I'll try to get around to looking a the package more closely tomorrow,
but please don't block on me. I feel bad enough that I missed this
email for so long.
