Severity: normal

The current maintainer of autoproject, James R. Van Zandt <>,
is apparently not active anymore.  Therefore, I orphan this package now.

Maintaining a package requires time and skills. Please only adopt this
package if you will have enough time and attention to work on it.

If you want to be the new maintainer, please see for detailed
instructions how to adopt a package properly.

Description: create a skeleton source package for a new program
 autoproject interviews the user, then creates a source package for a
 new program which follows the GNU programming standards.  The new
 package uses autoconf to configure itself, and automake to create the
 Makefile.  `make distcheck' succeeds.
 The idea is that you execute autoproject just once when you start a
 new project.  It will ask a few questions, then create a new directory
 and populate it with standard files, customized for the new project.
 Optionally, the new package will use a command line parser generator.
 Currently, autoproject supports two parser generators: clig by Harald
 Kirsch <> (see, and
 autogen by Bruce Korb <> (see
