No, basically I just want to update the package to now that it
is out and close the bugs that are no longer relevant to the latest

The problem is that the migration of the package code to git needs to be
completed first and then, there are so much changes between 4.7.0.x and that the package has to be revamped.

I am not planning on making any changes in the upstream code that are
not Debian-specific.

Great! Please check pkg-mc-devel at alioth out for my latest message
(what I replied to Andreas).

In theory, actually, the package can be revamped by making use of the
latest svn snapshot and as soon as I migrate the repository I can just
roll out your changes if you provide me with a patch.

Please check the message at alioth and tell me what do you think you'd
like to do:

1) Help with migration
2) Help with packaging
3) Help with bugs / triaging

Sincerely yours,
Yury V. Zaytsev
