Subject: RFA: ant-phone -- An interactive ISDN telephone application
Date: Thu, 09 May 2013 15:49:15 +0200
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

As both upstream maintainer and Debian maintainer, I can't fulfil my duties
anymore to support ant-phone, full description:

 ant-phone is a graphical ISDN telephone application that can be utilized in
 digital ISDN telephone networks to use a computer as an ISDN telephone. You'll
 need a full duplex soundcard or multiple sound devices compatible and an ISDN

It's hard to get a current ISDN setup nowadays. (Real) ISDN will be phased out
soon in Germany (I'm expecting this during the jessie development cycle). I
currently don't have a working ISDN card for modern hardware, and the old one
doesn't have free drivers. Therefore, I can't test new revisions of this
package in Debian and will also officially cease to support the upstream

However, it would be nice if someone shows up who is interested in upstream
and/or Debian development of this packages. Otherwise, I would request to
remove this package from jessie.

Thanks in advance,

Subject: Bug#707572: Removed package(s) from unstable
Date: Sat, 19 Oct 2013 16:14:29 +0000
We believe that the bug you reported is now fixed; the following
package(s) have been removed from unstable:

 ant-phone |    0.2.1-2 | source, amd64, armel, armhf, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, s390x, sparc

------------------- Reason -------------------
ROM; obsoleted

Note that the package(s) have simply been removed from the tag
database and may (or may not) still be in the pool; this is not a bug.
The package(s) will be physically removed automatically when no suite
references them (and in the case of source, when no binary references
it).  Please also remember that the changes have been done on the
master archive and will not propagate to any mirrors (
included) until the next dinstall run at the earliest.

Packages are usually not removed from testing by hand. Testing tracks
unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency
problems. The release team can force a removal from testing if it is
really needed, please contact them if this should be the case.

We try to close bugs which have been reported against this package
automatically. But please check all old bugs, if they were closed
correctly or should have been re-assigned to another package.

Thank you for reporting the bug, which will now be closed.  If you
have further comments please address them to
