Subject: O: tpp -- text presentation program

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the tpp package.

The package description is:
 Tpp stands for text presentation program and is an ncurses-based presentation
 tool. The presentation can be written with your favorite editor in a simple
 description format and then shown on any text terminal that is supported by
 ncurses - ranging from an old VT100 to the Linux framebuffer to an xterm.
 It supports color, LaTeX output of presentation, sliding in text,
 a command prompt and additional cool features.

As I'm not using this anymore and my ruby is pretty rusty by now, I have no 
interest in maintaining this further.
There is one pending change being merged from a contributor that would address the ncurses
problems mentioned in the BTS.

Feel free to contribute here, Andreas is also happily merging pull requests.
But other than that, the project is not further developed.
