[Pkg-scicomp-devel] Bug#732520: abinit: New upstream version, package unmaintained

Hi Ondrej,

as I said below I'd consider uploading abinit as is in SVN to get it at
least from a Debian packaging point of view fixed even if it is
outdated.  If I do not hear from you I will close #550410 by removing
you from Uploaders.  In case this will happen you are perfectly welcome
to add your ID again for further upgrades of the package and as I
repeatedly said I would be happy to sponsor your work.

Kind regards
