Bug#566364: RFH: doc-central
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

Dear Robert and everybody,

The native package doc-central looks abandonned by its listed maintainer,
Guilherme de S. Pastore (gpastore), whose last upload was four years ago. It
currently has 298 popcon users, and has been updated two times in NMU by Robert
Luberda, who kept the package alive for the Lenny release.

doc-central has one release-critical bug, making it unfit for the release. Are
there volunteers to adopt it? Robert? The QA team? Otherwise, despite it is
useful, it is maybe time to give up and remove it from our archive...

Only two packages recommend doc-central, libsuitesparse-doc and gnumed-client.
I have filed bugs on them to loosen the dependancy to suggest or drop it, since
these package do not particuarly need doc-central and it is already suggested
by the doc-base package.

Have a nice day,

Charles Plessy,
Tsurumi, Kanagawa, Japan
