Should bayonne be removed from the Debian archive?

Dear bayonne maintainer,

Are you still interested in taking care of the bayonne package?
I noticed that (as I reported at )

this package has at least one release-critical bug that is more than a
month old, and in addition it generates no binary package for which
popcon lists more than about 10 installations.  (This is the RC bug

and for the popcon report, see here: )

If you no longer have the time or interest to maintain bayonne,
and no one else can be found to maintain it, perhaps it should be
removed from the Debian archive since it is critically buggy and used by
very few people.  I would be happy to file a bug against the
pseudopackage on your behalf to request the removal of
bayonne.  Please let me know whether or not I may do so.

After a suitable period of time to collect replies (two weeks), I plan
to write to the debian-qa mailing list.  I'll give a summary of the
source packages listed at the first URL above for which I received
affirmative, negative, and no responses.

best regards,
