8 I'm interested in maintaining this package. From what I've investigated,
9 other major distributions don't apply any similar patches which means
10 that we are likely to stop carrying most (or even all) of the current
11 patches.
12 As this it obviously a high profile package with lots of reverse
13 dependencies it would be good to have another developer or a project
14 (such as base-system) co-maintaining to ensure that the package is
15 properly taken care of at all times.
