wanna-build is under NEW for already 3 weeks (might even be almost 4) and
counting. I got a IRC private from J. Jaspert informing that Ryan Murray
wanted to talk to me about my ITP, but i am still waiting (already 3 weeks)
for his mail. He does not answer to mail, nor pings on irc. That is a bit
annoying, since i cannot join interests and goals in wanna-build.
About the package, it has been modified to include the needed documentation
bits which were missing. Also, a new option (--offer) has been added, which
implements a way to request a package, according to arbitrary ordering flags,
from a default distribution or an arbitrary one.
The latest version uploaded to NEW has a bug, because the tools I am using to
get the package string relies on the output, and in some cases it outputs
garbage. It has been solved in my private svn tree, but is still discouraging
to see that no action is taken in the incoming package.
If anyone wants access to the package, i will upload it to ppl.debian.org or
to my personal web page.
