This GPLv3'd code appears to use OpenSSL but the msva-ruby's license
doesn't have any OpenSSL license exception, and without that the two
licenses are incompatible according to the FSF.

thanks

Hi,

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

 retitle 574159 ITP: msva-ruby -- Cryptographic identity validation agent (Ruby implementation)
 owner 574159 !
 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 <574159@bugs.debian.org>.

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