Hi Emmanuel, Mike,

I already have packaged kiwix but its having old version. I'm yet to
import the new version into repo.

@Mike Please use this [1] to help me co-maintain the package

 I'm okay for maintaining the package as part of Debian-Edu team I
will subscribe to the mailing list by tonight and commit some pending
work which is in my local repository to collab-maint which includes
patches to include dpkg-buildflags and version released by emannuel as
nightly for Debian packaging. I failed to build it because when I
tried Xulrunner-11.0 was missing from testing and package was not
building against Xulrunner-10.0. I would be happy if you can help in
co-maintaining the package. I'm just back from Germany so I need this
weekend to start working full time on Kiwix (As I'm on leave form my
office next week).

Since its already in collab-maint you can help me complete the work more fastly.

With Best Regards
