Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request assistance with maintaining the maradns package. The reason is mainly lack
of time and having someone to talk to about it would add some interest.

The package is in reasonably good shape except that we need to plan a transition
to the 2.0 version (currently in experimental). I had been thinking of working
hard to get a smooth upgrade. I no longer believe this is worthwhile. It just requires
a  new maradns2 package. The duende package can be shared between the two. A new package
also gives an opportunity to clean up the config. 

The package description is:
 An easy to configure DNS server that functions as a
 recursive and/or authoritative name server. Maradns is
 optimised for serving a small number of domains quickly and
 efficiently. Well suited to host your own private DNS server
 for making up subdomains with minimal fuss. Maradns is
 security-aware by utilising a special string library which
 is resistant to buffer overflows and mandating to run as an
 unprivileged user.

I reckon I've got Debian MaraDNS good shape *apart* from the fact that
the 2.x series is still only in experimental. I've been thinking long
and hard  about the best way to do it. I've changed my mind about the
best way to go about it. I am now inclined to a rather simple and
straightforward approach (new maradns2 source package). I am however
quite open to discuss it. Another thing that has changed is that I don't
particularly feel like doing this on my own anymore.

If you are interested in Debian packaging and MaraDNS then this is a
good opportunity. If - as part of the deal - you want to get other
software into Debian I can probably help you with that as well. If for
some reason I don't feel comfortable actually sponsoring your package, I
can at least help you get it to a good standard and point you at the
right people.
