Severity: normal

The current maintainer of mpack, Richard Braakman <dark@xs4all.nl>,
has orphaned this package.  Quoting Richard:

> mpack was important back when mail clients didn't have builtin mime
> handling. These days it's primarily used as a command-line
> alternative to the more interactive mail clients. It has two main
> functions, mime decoding and mime encoding. For decoding, I think
> uudeview is clearly superior. For encoding, there are some scripts
> based on the perl MIME libraries. Those aren't clearly superior, but
> mpack code is *ancient* and getting creaky. I think it needs a
> thorough security review too. (By the way, I've always gotten more
> questions about mpack from people trying to get it to work on
> Solaris than from Debian users :)

If you want to be the new maintainer, please take it -- see

instructions how to adopt a package properly.

Description: tools for encoding/decoding MIME messages
 Mpack and munpack are utilities for encoding and decoding
 (respectively) binary files in MIME (Multipurpose Internet
 Mail Extensions) format mail messages. For compatibility
 with older forms of transferring binary files, the munpack
 program can also decode messages in split-uuencoded format.
 Instead of munpack, the package maintainer recommends the
 more versatile package uudeview.
