Hi Dr. Tobias,

Thank you for helping with Hugo!
Indeed, there are lots of new dependencies in the newer versions, and
I really appreciate your help!

I am writing to let you know that github.com/jdkato/prose has already
been packaged, though under a different source package name.
See https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-go/packages/golang-github-jdkato-prose.git/

See also https://bugs.debian.org/871474 :
#871474: ITP: golang-github-jdkato-prose -- Golang library for text processing,

Unfortunately, I goofed up on the first try back in August: I missed
some copyright attributions in debian/copyright, leading to its
rejection a month later.
However, my fixed upload in September must have been overlooked by the
Debian FTP Masters as it is still stuck in the NEW queue a month and a
half later.
(Or perhaps the FTP Masters are still overwhelmed by the influx of new
packages after the Stretch release?)
See https://ftp-master.debian.org/new.html

I probably should have reached out for help sooner instead of just
waiting passively, though I didn't want to bother anyone prematurely.
Though apparently my inaction had led to a duplication of effort (my
apologies), and hence this email.

Thank you again to both Dr. Tobias and the FTP Masters Team for helping!
