Hi all, Currently Matt Zimmerman is maintainer of the debian package for Hercules. Unfortunately there has not been an update of the packages since February 2003 and the latest 3.02 version has yet to be packaged. Because there is a long standing RC bug open against the package (that even has a patch) , it has been removed from testing and is now being processed for complete removal by the Debian QA project. IMO it would be a great pity to loose this package, as Hercules is a great help, amongst others for development and testing of the Debian Installer (for which I mainly use it myself). So the question is: should Hercules get a new maintainer and is there anybody willing to take that job. The main problem with packaging the new version appears to be that the upstream source contains some unversioned shared libraries . Cheers, FJP  http://bugs.debian.org/251287 P.S. I use a self-compiled version of 3.02 currently (which works fine), so losing the Debian packages is not a complete disaster, but it still would be a shame.
