Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

The current maintainer of apt-rdepends, Simon Law <sfllaw@debian.org>,
is apparently not active anymore.  Therefore, I orphan this package
now.  If you want to be the new maintainer, please take it -- see

instructions how to adopt a package properly.

Description: Recursively lists package dependencies
 This utility can recursively list package dependencies, either forwards
 or in reverse.  It also lists forward build-dependencies.  The output
 format closely resembles that of `apt-cache depends`.  As well, it can
 generate .dot graphs, much like apt-cache in dotty mode.

Hi,

I was so free to retitle the bug report according to your owner change.
Please follow the instructions at [1] the next time. The reason for this
is that others can see your intension at a sight and don't need to look
into orphaned bug reports, if they are already taken by someone.

Best Regards,
Patrick

Hi,

I'm looking for a new maintainer for the package apt-rdepends, and CCing to the
debian-perl list as I hope someone with good Perl programming skills could be
interested in upstream-maintenance of this script.

Well, for the sake of sincerity, I declared my ITA about one year ago, but I
was really unable to pay so much attention to this package, mostly due to my
lack of Perl skills (as this script is much more and hack than a well-written
piece of software).

I'd be glad if someone from the pkg-perl team could be interested in
maintaining this package, but if I don't receive replies in a reasonable
timeframe, I'll formally (re)orphan it.

Thanks,

I could do this.  This package would be a dependency for something I am
doing.  Presently, I'm using the output of `apt-get -s install ...`

I'm not a member of the team but I'm lurking on the list for some time
now.

There was no reaction of Bastien (or anyone else) on Guy's offer for
more than a month, so I take Guy's offer and intend to adopt this
package.

If you're still interested in helping out: I wouldn't mind a
co-maintainer.

Do as you see fit.  You may remove me from the email list for the bug or
not as you please.  I am very busy at the moment.  I might have a go at
doing some debian work in 6 months or so.

Hi,

Axel Beckert wrote back in June:
> owner 487125 Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>

I must admit, I've lost interest in the package.

My main urge for adopting it was to fix http://bugs.debian.org/299228
("reverse build depends would be really useful") -- until I found out
that there is already a script named build-rdeps in devscripts which
does this already.

The other point is that -- after looking at the package closer -- I
noticed that despite it's a non-native package, it basically was one:
Simon Law is upstream author and maintained the package, too, but he
has retired from Debian.

So whoever adopts this package has probably either to fork it or to
continue maintaining it on a patch base only (which would be more or
less the same work), or prod Simon to continue upstream development.

Guy, Bastien, or whoever takes over this package: All the work I did
on the package so far (mostly fixing minor packaging issues) is at [1]
-- feel free to use it, but I don't mind if you start new from
scratch.

  [1] http://git.debian.org/?p=collab-maint/apt-rdepends.git

BTW, the upstream website given in the watch file and debian/copyright
do no more work, the new site is http://sfllaw.ca/freesoftware.html. I
changed that already in the above repository.

I will probably also do a QA upload based on that work, but most
likely only after or close to the Squeeze release (unless the package
has been adopted until then).

I'm also willing to sponsor this package, but I'm not sure if I would
co-maintain it.
