Re: reason not to adopt a package

Hi Christian,

Thanks for the tip. I'll look for a more vibrant package then.

IMHO, yes.

Even more, I'd even suggest that you file an Request For Removal bug
report (filing the bug against ftp.debian.org) for that package, maybe
after getting mor efacts such as its popularity contest score, date of
last upload, etc.

Not being online right now, I can't point you to the correct
instructions for such removal requests bug reports, but I don't doubt
that other list readers will give good advice. The whole Debian elite
is reading d-w.....

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
