Bug#400078: ITA revoked. Corrected to point to current maintainer

retitle 400078 Bug#400078: fixed in hostname 2.93
owner 400078 Daniel Baumann <daniel@debian.org>

Anibal, thanks for the note which I missed.

Daniel, I mistakenly announced ITA before I noticed you were listed
there. I happened to fixed all bugs in the package since 2.93. You can
get the newest version from:

  dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/h/hostname/hostname_2.94.dsc

The changes are so extensive, that diff wouldn't communicate the
modifications well. Download the new source and do a local comparison.
Or copy hostname.c directly from the package.
