[Spread-users] Spread in Debian

Sadly it is highly unlikely that Spread will be in the next version of
Debian [0].  The previous maintainer of the Debian packages put it up
for adoption in 2008 [1] but so far no one has picked it up.

As I wanted to test out Spread 4.2 for an application I work on I've
updated the Debian packages to Spread 4.2, and the Perl bindings package
to the latest version from CPAN plus some local patches.

However, I'm not in a position where I can take over maintainership of
the Debian packages. In the hope that someone on this mailing list would
like to see Debian continue to have Spread packages and will take over
the maintainership I'll make my work available.

Spread: http://git.catalyst.net.nz/spread.git
Perl Bindings: http://git.catalyst.net.nz/libspread-perl.git

Kind regards,
