Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request assistance with maintaining the apt-cross package.

For my reasons, see:

For background, see:
and for what needs to be done, see:

The main issue with apt-cross is already filed as a bug:

Those who help with apt-cross should also help with emdebian-tools and
vice-versa. See bug # 540333

The package description is:
 apt-cross is intended to make it easier to locate, download, install and
 update your cross-compiling libraries, directly from the Debian archives.
 By default, apt-cross uses /etc/apt/sources.list to find the current Debian
 package file for the architecture specified (or dpkg-cross default) and in
 the suite specified (default is unstable). Alternatively, you can specify
 a different mirror. Downloaded files can be passed directly to dpkg-cross
 using the -b or -i commands to apt-cross.

That new version of emdebian-crush has been uploaded and unblocked, so
I've added a removal hint for apt-cross.
