that sounds fine to me.
I will try to contact Jeremy and ask him to overtake the old patch from
the patchqueue. The patch adds some simple error checking. The patch
isn't originally from me, Guido Guenther was helping me in the past.
Locally I have done in the past some trying to use debconf and
dbconfig-common for automatic configuration of the package while
installation. But especially dbconfig-common is still a mystery to me.
In general I was thinking about splitting the source package into at
last two binary packages (one for mysql and the other for postgresql
backend) but make it possible to setup more than one instance.
In theory a sqlite backend is also possible but this would be not really
performant, so this maybe only useful for testing stuf without the big
databases. I also have no nowing about usage of mariadb or so.
I'm interested in co maintainig the package, but currently I simply have
not enough time bring the package in a first state for releasing.
So if you have forther question or little testing tasks I'm willing to
help. Do not bother to contact me directly.
PS: I was free to set you as new owner for this ITP.
