Hello to all.
The subject package is currently orphaned and I'm thinking of taking it over.
One problem I can foresee is that, as far as I can tell, there's no longer an upstream maintainer and at least one patch is required to fix compilation issues (warnings) and the code needs a general tidy-up.

I could maintain the patches locally, or as a small pet project I could take over upstream maintenance which shouldn't require much work as the codebase is small.
Any suggestions and advice would be appreciated and I'm new so please go easy!

Thanks.
Ian
