Package: kmidimon
Version: 0.7.5-3
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

I am looking to join in with the maintenance of the libdrumstick suite of
packages (vmpk, kmetronome etc.). Libdrumstick 1.0.2-1 is currently sitting in
experimental, waiting for a transition slot. Unfortunately, we missed the date
of the transition freeze for Debian Stretch, so it will have to wait for

Kmidimon is the only remaining reverse dependency of libdrumstick in Debian
that does not build with the latest version in experimental. Discussions with
the upstream maintainer suggest that it will be upgraded (including migration
to the latest Qt5 libraries) in early 2017.
