Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

The current maintainer of yada, Piotr Roszatycki <dexter@debian.org>,
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
http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/index.html#howto-o for detailed
instructions how to adopt a package properly.

Subject: Proposing yada for removal
Date: Sat, 6 Aug 2011 16:53:42 +0100
yada was recently orphaned: http://bugs.debian.org/636735 - I would
like to propose it for removal.  I believe it is unlikely to find a
maintainer.

There is a serious bug affecting all packages built using yada - yada
modifies the build-dependencies of the package during each build.
This will require some investment to fix, as it requires changing
how/when control files are regenerated:
http://bugs.debian.org/334164

14 packages Build-Depend on yada in unstable.

Other packages can perform the same role as yada, notably debhelper and cdbs.

Popcon is low - 121 installs, with a vote of just 21, and 98 old installs:
http://qa.debian.org/popcon.php?package=yada

Since it is a native package, the fact that it is orphaned means that
there is currently no active development.

Kind regards,

--

I guess these 14 RC bugs should be filed?

I think it would be best to just remove it. There are better
alternatives that are well maintained.

For the reverse build dependencies, there are some that probably should
just be removed (candidates could be cvsconnect, cvssuck, henplus and
ldapdns from a first look), some already have a patch (from Ubuntu:
gramofile, libapache2-mod-auth-plain, libnss-db), that would leave 7
remaining ones, were I'm sure there are volunteers to send patches when
necessary.

Cheers

Luk
