Bug#553887: directvnc: should this package be removed?
Please give directvnc a chance to make it for squeeze.
> * Dead/missing upstream.
Situation is evolving (granted, quite slowly though). I agreed with directvnc
author to take over the maintainance of the code, moved the code in github 
and applied debian patches and some trivial fixes.

Can you expand? I still want to check #538110, but it looks like a
compatibility issue with latest directFB. Appart from that, directvnc might
not be bug free of course, but it is pretty stable, at least I have seen it
used on hundreds of thin client boxes on different sites for months without any

You meant orphaned? I ITA'd it 9 months ago . Sure the low amount of time I
could allocate lately to this project dont make this happening at an
impressive speed, but if at the end I can upload (through a sponsor I guess) a
new package with all the needed fixes by early february (it will happen
hopefully sooner), it will at least have saved it for squeeze.

sure, not so many people need a DirectFB compatible VNC client, but there are
some and directvnc is the only choice available.
