So, please request to be added to the team via the web-interface and
subscribe to the e-mail list. I will acknowledge when I receive the request.

Difficult question, but I believe the answer is yes. As tuxcmd is
currently unmaintained in Debian, and hardly supported upstream, I think
it is warranted to request for removal (or depending on the scheme we
intent to follow, an adoption). If doublecmd is a viable replacement of
tuxcmd, we can help Debian users to find a replacement which can be
supported from the Debian point of view. I must admit, I haven't fully
figured out how we should do this the right way™.

If you feel my response above is not fully ridiculous, the answer is yes.

But in the mean time, as discussed in private, build, signed and
uploaded for now.
