Bug#642372: RFA: dar
Due to changing personal circumstances I have found that I am struggling to
give dar the time it deserves.
Generally speaking dar doesn't require much time. Last I checked it fails to
build from source, due to a bug in another package #632889 and this is blocking
a number of other easy to fix bugs, e.g. #637991 #637997 #638017 #639206
So fixing dar may require a NMU of libgpg-error-dev. Or an executive decision
to drop support for dar-static.
Upstream is responsive to all feedback.
