Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request adoption of whohas, a command line tool that allows you to query
several package collections at once.

Regrettably I no longer have the time nor perl-fu to properly look after
this tool (though I will do so where possible for Wheezy). It needs care from
time to time to keep up with distribution changes, but more importantly it
needs someone to drive upstream development forwards, either through
patches or a fork.

Upstream is pleasant but often unresponsive, though there are occasional
upstream releases. There is no upstream repository, you just get a tarball
from time to time.

I have the packaging and upstream history in git. I'd like to see it go to
a good home, it's a handy tool even though I don't use it so much any more.

Yaroslav and I will move this to collab-maint and co-maintain it. We
would welcome more co-maintainers, especially perl folks.

I've had some contact with upstream and have been trying to push them
into importing it into a git repository for a long time.

Hi,

A long time ago, you expressed interest in adopting whohas. Unfortunately,
it seems that it did not happen. In Debian, we try not to keep ITA bugs open
for a too long time, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to
refrain from adopting the package.

This is an automatic email to change the status of whohas back from ITA
(Intent to Adopt) to O (Orphaned), as this bug hasn't seen any activity
during the last 6 months.

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

 retitle 697137 ITA: whohas -- query multiple distributions' package archives
 owner 697137 !
 thanks

It is also a good idea to document your progress on this ITA from time to
time, by mailing <697137@bugs.debian.org>. If you need guidance on how to
adopt this package, please reply to this email, and/or contact the
debian-mentors@lists.debian.org mailing list.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
