Hi,

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

 retitle 594660 ITP: quantumminigolf -- Hit a quantum golf ball which is a wave packet
 owner 594660 !
 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 <594660@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

Sure, that's fine.

The thing with quantumminigolf is that the upstream code could use
some love.  First, the GUI is a bit odd, won't listen to a kill click,
hogs CPU, doesn't scale, etc.  And second, the numeric kernel could
use some work to decrease the visible-to-the-eye numeric artifacts.

So although the Debian packaging scripts are in okay shape, I don't
think it is ready for upload.  However if someone else wants it, or
better yet wants to address the upstream issues above, I'd be very
supportive.

All my packaging and patches are available.  See:
