Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request an adopter for the vm package.

The package description is:
 VM (View Mail) is an Emacs subsystem that allows UNIX mail to be read
 and disposed of within Emacs.  Commands exist to do the normal things
 expected of a mail user agent, such as generating replies, saving
 messages to folders, deleting messages and so on.  There are other
 more advanced commands that do tasks like bursting and creating
 digests, message forwarding, and organizing message presentation
 according to various criteria.  With smtpmail in modern emacsen, you do
 not need an MTA locally in order to use VM.
 .
 This package does not cater to XEmacs, since vm comes (by default)
 bundled in with XEmacs.

Upstream for this package seems to be dead again, and the issues
facing this package are getting to the point that I can't spend the
time it needs; my interests seem to be drifting away from this package
(I am more and more using IMAP and gnu, these days).

You mention there are issues facing this package, and that the  
upstream is dead.  What exactly are the issues?  I'm interested in  
taking over maintenance of the package, but would like to have the  
whole picture before deciding.

Thank you.

Cheers,
