I haven't seen much activity on this RFH about balsa, and it looks like it's been over a year since any version of balsa has been uploaded to debian. I've just NMUed balsa 2.5.9-0.1 to debian experimental, which fixes a pretty severe bug (#911558). I've also pushed a MR for these changes here: https://salsa.debian.org/gnome-team/balsa/merge_requests/1, asking if i can help out more directly (i don't have push access to the balsa repo on salsa). If you're ok with me helping out, it'd be most useful if i could have access to push to the basla repo on salsa. Also, if you want me to add myself to uploaders on the package, i'm willing to do that. A few notes about remaining packaging work i see ahead for balsa: - Change debian/changelog to DEP-5. - Split out the arch-independent stuff in /usr/share to a balsa-data package, to reduce the size of the archive (this requires a trip through NEW, sigh). - Add some sort of autopkgtest (maybe we need something like https://salsa.debian.org/debian/test-daemons to make a plausible test suite?) - Consider enabling newer upstream features like Autocrypt. - If we land 2.5.9 in unstable, consider importing upstream's gmime 3.0 conversion work into debian/patches for unstable Regards, --dkg
