Yes, it seems libabiword is simply pending an approval from ftpmasters.

It might be, however, that since this (as I understand it) is a complete 
rewrite of the packaging done by a non-developer, ftpmasters might 
actually find reasons for rejecting this and it will need further work 
before getting accepted.  Not that I expect any bad quality work from 
Patrik Fimml in particular, just stating general cencerns here.

Also, beware that libabiword packaged does not in itself provide us the 
Read activity: It still needs packaging :-)

Thanks for all your great work tracking these issues, Sascha!
