Hi folks,

As some of you may already know, I have been doing a lot of package

OpenMotif.  It has been orphaned since 2006 and has several bugs against 
it.  However, it does still have 1 r(b)depends. (arb which is also in 

I was considering packaging up the new upstream but I would have to 
register to do that and I am not really keen on putting that much effort 
into a non-free package.

Anyone have an opinion?

P.S.  Apologies for the cross-post but since arb is a Debian Med 
Packaging team I am CCing them.
