Description: A CD image format converter from bin/cue to iso/cdr/wav
 The bchunk package contains a UNIX/C rewrite of the BinChunker program.
 BinChunker converts a CD image in a .bin/.cue format (sometimes .raw/.cue)
 into a set of .iso and .cdr/.wav tracks.  The .bin/.cue format is used by some
 non-UNIX CD-writing software, but is not supported on most other CD-writing

Apologies for the extended inactivity. I've been distracted with other
things lately, and maintaining bchunk hadn't been high on my priorities
list.. One factor contributing to that was the lack of any activity (bug
reports, new releases) until tbm reported this.

Perhaps it is somewhat telling that I found out about this from a friend
rather than from keeping an eye on the project. Nevertheless, I am
indifferent to the possibility of someone else taking over
maintainership of this package.

However, before this happens, having my packages orphaned for me has
been a bit of a wake-up call, and I've prepared an upload of bchunk with
the new upstream version integrated. It's updated to latest policy and
lintian clean.

I don't think it'll be a problem to upload this to unstable tonight. Let
me know if you are still interested in maintaining this, otherwise I'll
continue maintaining it.
