Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the antpm package. I am the only uploader, the
pkg-running group is anything but active and I intend to reduce my
involvment in packaging (probably as I intend to resign from Debian in
one year or so)

The package description is:
 This software uses the Garmin ANT+ proprietary USB keys and
 communication protocol to retrieve information (such as GPS traces)
 from some Garmin Forerunner watches such as Forerunner 405 and 310XT.
 The underlying ANT+minus implements the ANT/ANT+/ANT-FS protocols to
 provide these tools: garmin-ant-downloader, antpm-downloader,
 antpm-fit2gpx, and antpm-usbmon2ant.
 ANT+minus is a userspace implementation of a wire protocol similar
 to the ANT/ANT+/ANT-FS protocols. The goal is to be able to communicate
 with any ANT capable device in order to e.g. retrieve sports tracks. The
 c++ implementation is currently available under both linux and win.
 Communication with watches other than the 310XT might work, but are
 untested. Please report your experience to help improving the software.
 The software was originally named "gant" but renamed when packaged
 to avoid confusion with existing Java software.
