Bug#316238: acknowledged by developer (Package exists in the archive)
I think you have closed the request without understanding it.
I know there is a ddrescue package in debian. The request is about
creating a new package for GNU ddrescue, that is _not_ in debian, or
replacing the current ddrescue package with GNU ddrescue.
Antonio Diaz, author of GNU ddrescue and GNU ocrad.
PS. I am not a debian developer and I can't upload packages.

It seems that this package already exists in the archive. If you have
uploaded the package yourself but forgotten to close this WNPP bug, please
read the instructions at http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp for handling
WNPP bugs properly. You should close WNPP bugs in your initial upload
with a statement like "Initial upload. (Closes: #316238)". Thanks.
Of course, it might also be that someone else uploading this package,
in which case the statements above don't apply -- in any case, the package
seems to be in the archive now.
