Subject: RFP: wwwoffle -- World Wide Web OFFline Explorer

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : wwwoffle
  Version         : 2.9h
  Upstream Author : Andrew M. Bishop <amb "at">
* URL             :
* License         : GPL2
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : World Wide Web OFFline Explorer

The wwwoffled program is a simple proxy server with special features
for use with dial-up internet links.  This means that it is possible
to browse web pages and read them without having to remain connected.

The package has previously been shipped with Debian but was removed[1]
due to unresolved RC bugs. I therefore include the original maintainer
(Paul Slootman) in X-Debbugs-CC. As far as I know there has been no
response from Paul on wwwoffle.

Is there anyone else interested in bringing wwwoffle back to Debian? Is
there any repository for the previous Debian packaging efforts? I could
offer some help with the package.
