Default Bug#579735: O: gtkmathview

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I'm hereby orphaning the gtkmathview package. It consists of a C++ library used
to render MathML documents to various backends, including GTK. Most notably, it
is used to support rendering of mathematical formulae in third party
applications, such as abiword.

The library has become quite stable in recent years, and upstream is friendly,
competent, and reponsive. The package is in collab-maint already, builds upon
autotools and has hence one-liner CDBS or dh7 debian/rules.

The maintenance burden is very low.

I'm copying the abiword maintainers: given that the sky-rocketing popcon of
gtkmathview is mainly due to them, they might want to maintain the package by
themselves to avoid breakages in abiword.

I'm filing the "O" bug now, I'll upload the actually orphaned package if noone
step up to take it over in a week or so (feel free to ping me if I forget).
