Hi all,

I have just requested an adopter for WinFF, written in Free Pascal. 
Maintaining that package is how I got involved in this Team. Maybe 
somebody in this team is interested in taking over (and maybe it makes 
sense to put it in team maintenance). The burden currently is low, 
because upstream stopped development.

I request an adopter for the winff package. WinFF was the first
package I created for Debian and it has been a fun ride those 15
years. Nowadays I focus more on QA and Release Team work and am less
interested in maintaining packages (particular as I'm not using it

The main upstream developer has stopped development. I still have full
access to the upstream github instance so I can also help setup people
that want to take over upstream development (or maintenance).

The package description is:
  WinFF is a graphical user interface for FFmpeg or avconv. It will convert
  almost any video file that FFmpeg or avconv will convert. WinFF does 
  files in multiple formats at one time. You can, for example, convert
  mpeg's, flv's, and mov's into avi's (or DVD/VCD format or MPEG or 3gp
  etc.) all at once.
  WinFF provides a variety of preset conversion settings for
  common formats and devices. These presets are intended to hit the
  "sweet spot" for each individual codec. They have been written with a
  tip of the balance to quality.
  For most presets to work, it is necessary to have the unstripped version
  of the libavcodec package, which can be obtained by installing
  libavcodec-extra as suggested by the WinFF suite. It might be necessary
  to enable additional repositories to find that package.
