Severity: normal

The current maintainer of libpam-ldap, Richard A Nelson (Rick)
<cowboy@debian.org, 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
http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/index.html#howto-o for detailed
instructions how to adopt a package properly.

If anyone is willing to be maintainer of the libnss-ldap and libpam-ldap
packages I'm willing to help getting the packages into shape.

I'm the maintainer of nss-pam-ldapd (a replacement for both) but I'm not
looking to become maintainer of the above packages myself.

I'm also willing to get the packages into shape by:
- updating to the latest upstream versions
- switch to 3.0 (quilt) source format (converting patches)
- switch to dh sequencer
- more packaging cleanups
- try to fix most RC bugs and try to address some of the other bugs

I may also point people to libnss-ldapd and libpam-ldapd as alternatives
(depending on whether anyone else is willing to do any work on this).

I can make a QA upload of the above changes (depending on whether anyone
objects, speaks up or no-one responds). It would be best to have the
packages in some VCS somewhere (any suggestions?).

The alternative is to remove the packages (see #717917 and #717918)
which, while being good for the popularity of my packages ;), would
perhaps not be the most ideal situation.

Any comments?
