Hello Mehdi,

I had forwarded your mail to debian-edu-pkg-team mailing list (in CC)
and one of the upstream author responded back with following mail. He
had already cc'd you I'm just sending the mail to buglist so we can
have a record of this discussion.

Can you please provide some more information on rejection
reason. Please keep debian-edu mailing list in CC.

Kind Regards

I believe there is a misunderstanding between the debian/CHANGELOG and
the software changelog:

Can you try to post that and check as I think we all agree Kiwix is
mature enough for wheezy and missing wheezy is a very sad news :(
