Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

The current maintainer of spellutils is not with us anymore and cannot
take care of the package 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 for detailed
instructions how to adopt a package properly.

Some information about this package:

  Utilities to spell-check selectively

  Spellutils is a suite of programs which are used to isolate some
  parts from various types of files and hand them over to another
  program which may change the texts; it is typically a spell checker.
  Afterwards the possibly changed text parts are copied back in place
  in the original file.

  The newsbody program is intended for use on mail and news messages;
  it can e.g. ignore headers, quoted material and signatures.

  The pospell program is for use on translated strings in .po files.
