I just noticed that WML contains yet another embedded code copy which
is not listed at

The wml source package currently contains and uses txt2html 1.28
(dated 2000/05/22 23:44:58) as published as last version by its
original author. He gave the project away and it's nowadays hosted at
SourceForge. Debian's txt2html package version 2.51 is probably from

JFTR: As I may have already mentioned, the next upload of wml (I'm
adopting the package currently) will no more use the embedded code
copy of libgd2 as well as removing all unused embedded code copies
from the source package by repackaging.

If the newer txt2html version doesn't break wml, I'll probably remove
that embedded code copies from the wml source package, too.
