Yes from my side, but the maintainers have to give their word.

I don't know which package (LaTeX package) they need, but it is probably in tl-latex-recommended or -extra. If they install texlive-full and the use dlocate to find the respective replacement it will be fixed in a minute. But I don't know what they need from the former -latex3

I know, this packagehas serious problems and I tried to fix a few of them but not all. I already informed the maintainers long time ago.

Same here, I had several contacts with the maintainer. The problem is that this package provides a tex font name that is already in use since long and also since long in TeX Live. So installing this package would suddenly change all documents using the standard font names.

The maintainer seems to have orphaned this package, so probably the best is to male an upload of the source package were this one bin package is not build anymore.

Should be adapted by the maintainers.

Anything else I can provide?
