Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of timebrowse back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting timebrowse, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 650196 ITP: timebrowse -- NILFS Snapshot Manager/Windows VSS like Nautilus extension
 owner 650196 !
 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 <650196@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

I've decided to return this package to RFP state because nobody
expressed any interest to this package since my ITP. I reckon NILFS2
is not very popular even though it is great and very stable file
system.

I committed complete packaging to the following repository:

    http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=collab-maint/timebrowse.git

Source package produces the following binary packages:

 * nilfs-ss-manager - NILFS Snapshot Manager
 * nautilus-timebrowse - nautilus extension to access NILFS2 snapshots

"nilfs-ss-manager" works well. 

"nautilus-timebrowse" do not work at all (it used to work but now it
needs to be updated for python gtk mess and new nautilus). Anyway it
is not very useful because with "nilfs-ss-manager" NILFS2 snaphots can
be accessed using any file manager. Perhaps "nilfs-ss-manager" can be
shipped alone.

Upstream status: dormant with no commits since April 2011.
