Subject: O: nvi - 4.4BSD re-implementation of vi
Date: Sat, 26 Jan 2013 00:38:07 +0000
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

The maintainer for the "nvi" package has indicated that he is unable to
maintain this package for the time being. I'm marking this package as orphaned
now. If you want to be the new maintainer, please take it -- see
http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/index.html#howto-o for detailed instructions
how to adopt a package properly.

Description-en: 4.4BSD re-implementation of vi
 Vi is the original screen based text editor for Unix systems.
 It is considered the standard text editor, and is available on
 almost all Unix systems.
 .
 Nvi is intended as a "bug-for-bug compatible" clone of the original
 BSD vi editor. As such, it doesn't have a lot of snazzy features as do
 some of the other vi clones such as elvis and vim. However, if all
 you want is vi, this is the one to get.

An ITA bug on nvi will block someone else who wants to adopt it, and
therefore I don't plan on doing that until I'm actually ready to commit to
adopting it myself.  In the meantime, the orphaned status is correct.

I read debian-release and debian-qa, so hopefully I'll notice if someone
starts looking seriously at removing it from the archive.  I'll also copy
this message to the O bug.

It shouldn't, as long as you title it appropriately and explain that, should
someone else want it, they're welcome.

something like: "ITA: nvi (if someone else wants to adopt it, please do)"

Yeah, that should help.
