Hey there,
this mail is about the WNPP page compiled by Mònica.

I can take care of two packages from activityworkshop.net (OSM Wrangler and
Mkgmap GUI), since I also maintain gpsprune, and I've established good
collaboration with upstream.

Regarding OSMembrane: I tried it, and really like it. It's a nice
GUI frontend to Osmosis (which is used to filter/mangle .osm files in various
ways, FYI). I did take a look at it when it was announced on OSM mailing lists;
however, I found some issues with the source code (embedded jars with no source
code available, and the such). After a couple of days, I haven't investigated it
further though. So it might be worth a look. I can take care of it as well.

Regarding abandoned software: I'd vote for not packaging it (after all, Debian
is not a "dead software dump", and all the maintainance burden would be on us)
-- unless upstream revives it, that is (mapdiff is abandoned? and written in D
-- a good candidate for not being packaged :D).

Should we add a new column to list the person taking care of a package? Or
should we just go file ITPs and link them there? (I'd be for the latter)
