Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

Hi there. I'm looking for someone to adopt the ytnef family of packages.
I personally don't have a use for this package anymore. It is useful
when people who use Outlook send you attachments, but I've since
converted everyone I care about to programs that speak MIME.

There haven't been any upstream releases since I uploaded the package
the first time, but there are a few things you can do, like make it
easier for people to integrate this into their procmail filter.

Here's the canned description:

 Yerase's TNEF Stream Reader allows you to decode application/ms-tnef
 e-mail attachments, which are usually entitled "winmail.dat" and are
 generally a file container format that is only readable by Microsoft
 Outlook. Some TNEF streams also include RTF-formatted data.
 .
 ytnef parses these streams into normal MIME attachments and RTF
 attachments that you can read from non-Outlook mail readers.
 .
 A convenience script is provided to allow users to transparently
 filter messages containing TNEF attachments into messages with
 proper attachments, via procmail.

Feel free to go ahead and just hijack the package if you are interested.
I will keep on maintaining it until then.

-Josh
