He adopted the orphaned package. But debian/changelog says only:
yard (2.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version

Please tell him he MUST mention the other changes he did in the changelog
including the changes where he closed bugs or that he is the new
maintainer. It's very annoying and makes much work if you can't see in the
changelog what changed.
His package doesn't build (one thing he doesn't mention in the changelog
is he made a new debian/rules...):
Checking your version of cp...OK
Both lstat and -l seem to work -- good
ERROR, your ldconfig does not have a -r (chroot) option.
Please upgrade to a newer version that has this option.
Yard now depends upon it.
# Add here commands to compile the package.
make: Entering directory `/tmp/yard-2.0'
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/tmp/yard-2.0'
make: *** [build-stamp] Error 2
Is this package really good enough for a "T&S passed" ???
I recommend that Hector is not yet accepted as a Debian Maintainer.
BTW: I started making a QA upload for yard some time ago but forgot to
upload it correctly. I've send Hector my diff.
A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a
"Yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
