Severity: normal

The current maintainer of pm3, Mike Goldman <whig@debian.org>, is
apparently not active anymore.  Therefore, I orphan this package now.
If you want to be the new maintainer, please take it -- retitle this
bug from 'O:' to 'ITA:', fix the outstanding bugs and upload a new
version with your name in the Maintainer: field and a

   * New maintainer (Closes: #thisbug)

in the changelog so this bug is closed.

Description: Polytechnique Montreal Modula-3
 The Modula-3 distribution of Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal is based
 on the DEC SRC Modula-3 programming environment.
 .
 Modula-3 is a systems programming language that descends from Mesa,
 Modula-2, Cedar, and Modula-2+. It also resembles its cousins Object
 Pascal, Oberon, and Euclid.
 .
 The goal of Modula-3 is to be as simple and safe as it can be while
 meeting the needs of modern systems programmers. Instead of exploring new
 features, they studied the features of the Modula family of languages
 that have proven themselves in practice and tried to simplify them into
 a harmonious language. They found that most of the successful features
 were aimed at one of two main goals: greater robustness, and a simpler,
 more systematic type system.
 .
 Modula-3 retains one of Modula-2's most successful features, the
 provision for explicit interfaces between modules. It adds objects and
 classes, exception handling, garbage collection, lightweight processes
 (or threads), and the isolation of unsafe features.
 .
 A large number of platform independent libraries are available for easily
 constructing distributed, graphical, multi-threaded applications.

Hi,

I'd like to take care of the pm3 package. However, I'm not a Debian
project member yet. I understand that I have to find a sponsor first.

Some background information:

 * the company I work for is sponsoring the new home of PM3, so we'll
   basically "own" upstream. See recent news on http://m3.org/ for
   details

 * there is an alternative M3 distribution, called CM3[1], which is under
   active development. Since PM3 is slated to go into maintenance
   mode, CM3 will eventually supersede PM3. CM3 development is headed
   by a colleague of mine, Olaf Wagner <wagner@elego.de>. Olaf has
   been an active member in the Modula-3 community for many years and
   originally ported DEC SRC Modula-3 to FreeBSD

 * eventually, we'd like to package CM3 for Debian

Other involvement in Free Software projects:

 * I'm an XEmacs project member; amongst other things, I'm taking care
   of the clearcase.el package

 * I'm an old-time Unix hand and ix86 Debian user since Buzz

Yes, try mailing the debian-mentors mailing list (see
http://lists.debian.org), describing the package and asking
for a sponsor.

Also, you adopt an orphaned package formally by retitling the O: bug
report.  See http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp  The WNPP bug report
for pm3 is 129594.  There is also one for pm3i386.

Otherwise, sounds good, I suggest you go ahead.
