Bug#888807: RFS: qstardict/1.3-1
Control: owner -1 !
I will take a look a the package likely tonight.
One thing you can already prepare is to put yourself
in as maintainer; as you saw in private conversation,
Alexander won't have time for maintaining the pacakge in
the near future and agreed to get his name dropped (and maybe
later readded when this changes)
