Thank you for your expert response, advice and intervention. > Please let me know if it doesn't show up > there... I see your message there [http://bugs.debian.org/251038] presently. It looks good. I and anyone else who reads the #251038 bug log now understand that some form of my zpasswd.py patch is to be considered for the next official feature-adding Zope release. If any Debian guys happen to come around zope-dev in the next six months, if they show a serious interest, and if you think of it, you might mention to them that Debian Zope has an inactive maintainer and seems ripe for takeover. Zope is somewhat a popular package among Debian users. While the Debian Project does not normally take packages away from unreasonable maintainers, it routinely takes them away from missing maintainers who fail even to respond to a takeover-proposing e-mail (but no such e-mail has yet been sent, nor do I myself mean to send one, nor do I call Debian's Zope maintainer unreasonable: he has written me neither rudely nor in any other manner; he has merely been silent). Sometimes sleepy Debian maintainers wake up when a takeover is proposed; more often in experience, they just keep sleeping. I am no Zope user, or I would politely offer to take the Debian package over myself. (If the maintainer reads these words, I hope that he will take no offense. Presumably he has just been busy this year in real life, which is something we all respect. If he would without delay relieve me of handling #251038, I would appreciate it. His active stewardship of the Debian package is welcome.) Am unsubscribing from zope-dev now. Thanks guys. If you should happen to want me for any further purpose, related or unrelated to #251038, please copy your message to me not just to the list. -- Thaddeus H.
