Dear Debian Bug Tracking System,
There seems to be some break in communication or some misunderstanding
created due to acts on my part. I hope that the "cdw" package will
continue in Debian with the new maintainer (see below).
I originally filed bug #228452 becuase the original maintainer could not
be contacted and rashly said I would try to maintain the package myself.
This bug was refiled by Martin Michlmayr saying that the package should
be removed. He also wrote to me that I should try to find a mentor on
the debian-mentors list.
Unfortunately, I did nothing to live up to my earlier statement that I
would take up maintaining the package.
Later I recd. the message enclosed from the upstream maintainer of "cdw"
who wanted to take up the maintenance of the Debian package as well.

As I understand it Balazs Varkonyi *is* going through the required process
to become the Debian maintainer of the "cdw" package.
