Package: surfraw
Version: 2.2.9-1
Severity: normal

Dear uploaders, what is the status of Debian package surfraw?

Surfraw as upstream project moved on gitlab[1] and released version 2.3.0,
that resolve some of bugs. On other hand, debian package 2.2.9 was not
updated since 2013, and, since April 2018 (decommission of Alioth), have
invalid metadata, in particular, Maintainer field.

I updated package quite a bit [2]; changes are too big for NMU. Please,
consider using my work and upload surfraw-2.3.0. As I mentioned, current
Maintainer field is invalid, so I added Uploaders in CC.

If nothing will happen, I plan to make QA upload in a month or so.
