Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

The current maintainer of xed, David Z Maze <>,
has orphaned this package.  If you want to be the new maintainer, please
take it -- see for
detailed instructions how to adopt a package properly.

The maintainer writes:
| xed is something of a novelty package written in Tcl, and there are many
| other text editors that are actually useful. It hasn't got much support from
| its upstream recently. Although it should not be particulary hard to
| maintain, arguably there are better alternatives for it.
