Default Bug #302907 - maintainer doesn't reply

Bug #302907 in libstroke0-dev has been open and had a (working) patch
for 6 years. The maintainer has never replied or done anything else
concerning this bug.

Could this bug be eventually fixed?

Hi Vincent,

Sure it can, and it *will* be fixed as soon as someone does that

The bug is 6 years old but, at the same time, the package hasn't been
uploaded to the Debian archive for the past 4 years. Chances are that
the maintainer, Cc:-ed, has lost interest in maintaining the package or
is simply in need of help.

How about you prepare an nmudiff and post it to the bug log for review
as a concrete step forward to fix the issue? If the maintainer does not
reply, you can then ask for sponsoring (to the maintainer, to -mentors,
or the like) and eventually even step in as the maintainer of a package
you seem to care about.

Many thanks in advance for your help,
Cheers.

Hi,

Indeed an NMU or a new maintainer for the libstroke package would be
most welcome. Please go ahead and upload if you wish; no need to ask my
permission.
