Bug#200884: Please remove wavtools from unstable

Package: ftp.debian.org

The wavtools package has been orphaned for nearly a year now, there
are no reverse depends, and there are better replacements. The overall
quality, or rather the absence of it, has been summarized in #97589 by
Daniel Kobras. I concur with his statement that "the upstream author
obviously doesn't have an iota of clue how a WAV file actually has to
look like". It does not work on a lot of WAV files, it does not work
on big-endian systems at all, and I do not think we need it in


Give a man an answer, and he's satisfied today. Teach him to program,
and he will be frustrated for the rest of his life.
