I now understand, thanks for sharing this.
This new version fixes #618087, am I right?

I do agree it still has a place in Debian if it is used and usable. The
popcon figures [0] aren't very high but I guess it is normal for such a

Great, still need to be tested after the changes I have made (I had to
reapply the patch which had been applied on the files directly rather than
via a quilt patch).

The changelog should also mention that the package is back to Debian.

Once you have been able to check all this again, I will be happy to upload
