Dear Benoît,

this package was just removed ([0]) and one of the reasons was "dead upstream".
Has this changed? I don't think so, as the removed version equals what you
stated in your ITP.
If the reasons which lead to the removal are still valid I'd argue against a new
snes9x package (please note, that there are other emulators for SNES AFAICS).

Kind regards,
Kai Wasserbäch

Yes, the project has been taken over: https://github.com/snes9xgit/snes9x
