No this is not needed, you can add this in one commit. Just mention in
the commit message where you have copied it from.

2) Is it acceptable / preferable to do two commits, one to move the
package as is, and a second to bring it up to date and fix its building,
or should it just be a single commit?

You can do this in one commit.

OK. I have adjusted the commit(s).

3) Do I need to do anything other than a pull request on github to offer
to maintain a package? (Presumably also a pull request to delete it from

No not really, you should probably update the package to a more recent
version I assume that version in oldpackage is outdated.

Yes, it was. I have updated to the most recent version, which fortunately reduces the dependencies.

I've raised PR#5715 on github for the adoption of gkrellmd. Many thanks for your advice. Will you delete it from oldpackages when it goes in to packages, or would you also like a PR for that?
