Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

Hi,

as announced last week, I'd like to find a new maintainer for
libopenusb.

The package description is:
 The Open USB library provides a platform independent API to USB, including
 synchronous and asynchronous transfers and thread safety.

The package is a mostly standard library package with a fairly inactive
upstream. The thread safety bit is sort of an exaggeration, as there is
a race condition somewhere, so be prepared to handle a bit of C
debugging.

   Simon

Subject: libopenusb: should this package be removed?
Date: Sun, 04 Mar 2012 04:41:04 +0100
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Hi Simon,

as mentioned in #613182, hal is dead upstream and I checked the latest
libopenusb upstream version (1.1.7) which still uses libhal.
Also, seeing that nobody stepped up taking over maintenance of this
package and it has no reverse dependencies, so I'm wondering if the best
action forward is to just remove it from the archive.

What do you think?

Michael
