Bug#923928: unblock: daps/3.0.0-3

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
needs them.

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,


unblock daps/3.0.0-3

Hi Release Team

The following mail was sent to bug #924843, but I think it should have
been sent to #923928 as well, so here it is.
