Please unblock package daps
Greetings, Fellow Debianites and Release Managers,
I would like to advocate for daps to enter testing if no critical bugs
are found in it:
- daps is an all-arch package useful to create DocBook-based documentation;
I have packaged this software piece myself because my msxpertsuite software
I really would like msxpertsuite to be part of stable, because it is a
replacement of massxpert that had a pretty good popularity contest rate. It is
not a recent development, and I currently have a paper in revision where I
pretend it will be in Debian :-).
daps does not have reverse-dependencies other than msxpertsuite.
In the hope that you will consider this request favorably,
