Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of mobiperl 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 mobiperl, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 521426 ITP: mobiperl -- Generate and manipulate MobiPocket/Kindle files
 owner 521426 !
 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 <521426@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

Subject: mobiperl: unofficial packages of version 0.0.43
Date: Mon, 28 Jan 2013 13:15:13 +0100
Hi folks,

Based on the work Eugenio Cutolo <e.cutolo@gmail.com> did for Ubuntu in
2008 I just buildt unofficial packages of mobiperl 0.0.43 for
wheezy/testing.

Maybe they are usefull for others. You can find them at:

http://apt.klaumikli.de/testing

The packages work, but to get them into official Debian there remains
a lot to do:

* debian/rules: has be be rewritten totally to make use of dh_make
* convert the upstream html-man pages in real manpages
* add all binaries to the menu-file
* fix upstream makefile

So it's only the first step of a long and winding road ;-)

Klaumi
