Hi, since Rafael has retired, I'm willing to adopt qhull,
co-maintained w/ the Debian Science team of course, and subject to
their approval.

I did a quick packaging update to the latest upstream and other
minor tweaks, which are available for perusal at
on branch "debian".
I'd appreciate it if someone on the team could take a quick look and
let me know if this makes sense, and if the packaging meets the team's
standards and protocols.


PS I'm not sure what git format is being used in the alioth git repo.
   Do all Debian Science package just keep the debian/ subdirectory?
   I'm accustomed to keeping a merged tree combining upstream +
   debian, but can adapt if requested.  In any case, I merged the
   subdirectory in with the upstream branch in the above gitorious
   repo for convenience while pushing patches between the two; easy
   enough to segregate it out if required.
