Severity: important

xitalk[1] is a talk intercept utility for X. The current version in sarge
is broken and a newer upstream version does not fix this issue.

Anthony DeRobertis filed a release-critical bug[2] against xitalk which
describes the same problem I had when packaging the newest upstream
version as I intended to adopt this package[3]. The previous maintainer
is missing in action and nobody, apart of me, volunteered to take over
this package in one and a half years.

Popcon lists xitalk on place #7297 with 21 installations and 9 regular

Kind regards,

Note that the package(s) have simply been removed from the tag
database and may (or may not) still be in the pool; this is not a bug.
The package(s) will be physically removed automatically when no suite
references them (and in the case of source, when no binary references
it).  Please also remember that the changes have been done on the
master archive ( and will not propagate to any
mirrors ( included) until the next cron.daily run at the

unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency

close them or re-assign them to another package if the removed package
