Dear Nima,

amap was included in Debian until Etch; maybe you can start your work from the
previous amap package:

http://archive.debian.org/debian/pool/main/a/amap/

We will have to discuss what to do with /usr/bin/amap, which is for the moment
used by the bioinformatic software from the package amap-align.

By the way, http://freeworld.thc.org/thc-amap/ does not seem to work.

Have a nice day,

which makes me wonder even more, what is so "next-generation" about this tool. 
Probably best to remove those pointless words in the short and long 
description, though if you want to keep them in the long description, please 
at least explain there what makes amap so "next-generation".


regards,

noowner 519957
thanks

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of amap back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting amap, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 519957 ITP: amap -- Next-generation tool for assisting network penetration testing
 owner 519957 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <519957@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
