Bug#960986: RFS: fortune-zh/2.96 [ITA] -- Chinese Data files for fortune

From  https://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/, we can see:

  • 1190 orphaned packages
  • The number 1190 is almost 10% of the total package number  in Debian.

    There is so much orphaned packages is not a good thing for a Linux distribution.

    During the adopting packages, you also need do some work about: 

    import old package source code to salsa,


    old bug fix and explorer,

    update to newer upstream version,

    feedback the questions,patches when packaging to upstream author,

    collaboration with sponsors, QA team, other package team.

    clear bug in BTS, also need  communication  to end users.

    I'd already do these work recently.:-)

    By saying housekeeping, it means doing works that does not change the
    package behavior that would affect the user experience. For example
    changing the DH compat and fix lintian warnings by updating the
    packaging. These works are friendly to new comers, but people are not
    encouraged to adopt the package if main intention is updating these
    Adopting packages usually requires more dedication than slightly
    updating the packaging, rather you will need to invest more time on
    keeping it in good shape in the long run. By adopting them you become
    the maintainer and you have the ultimate responsibility to the quality
    of that package in Debian.
