I'm the upstream developer and I had been including a debian directory
with my releases for some time. I've just updated that and made it
lintian-clean with the intent of becoming the official (sponsored)
maintainer for it.

Newsstar is a mature project with infrequent releases and no current
known bugs.

  Upstream Author : Tony Houghton <h@realh.co.uk>

Newsstar is designed to transfer Usenet articles as quickly as possible
between a local server (supports INN, s-news and sn) and multiple remote
servers, using "pipelining" and multithreading techniques for speed.
Other features include score-based killfiling and SSL support.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of newsstar back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

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

 retitle 538706 ITP: newsstar -- advanced NNTP fetcher/sender
 owner 538706 !
 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 <538706@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
