Hi Scott,

I started to collect small tools related to standard documents that I might 
have time to package as a whole once:
https://github.com/thkoch2001/Standard-Document-Tools

Would you like to include rfcdiff in that collection and maintain the whole 
package with me? There are other examples of such tool collection packages 
like emacs-goodies or devscripts.

Best regards,

Thomas Koch, http://www.koch.ro

This particular tool is only aimed at one narrow audience, people who are 
active in developing IETF standards.  I don't think it would fit in with other 
tools.

Hi,

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

 retitle 661840 ITP: rfcdiff -- IETF Internet Draft Difference Tool
 owner 661840 !
 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 <661840@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
