Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

The current maintainer of vbetool, Bradley Smith <>,
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.
