Hi all,

app-accessibility/festival has not done a release upstream in some time.
We currently have several bugs against this package, including one
security bug.

Since a lot of blind people are now using espeak as their software
speech synthesizer, and the new version of emacspeak (version 26, which
will be in portage pretty soon) can support espeak, I would like to know
this.

Once emacspeak 26 is in the tree, I would like to move festival out of
accessibility, or remove it from the tree.

If there is a reason to keep festival in the tree,
can someone please contact me and take over the package?
