QA information


  1. Please do not introduce packages that have been dead upstream for so long.
    By the way the reintroduction would require you to step in as maintainer. They are never NMUs.

  2. I have wrote an email to the previous maintainer and he assured the package is not dead. Spek is stable.
    I am just helping him to bring Spek back to Debian 12. I use Spek everyday, it would be a huge loss to discard this very useful software.

  3. Then please go ahead, file an ITP, make yourself the Maintainer, and upload a -5 revision which closes the ITP and #933438 via the changelog.
