Fwd: vc-dev package, trying to contact the package maintainer
Kay's message has not made it to the list, so I'm forwarding our
conversation about Vc. Kay says that we are the maintainers -- are we?
If so, I think we should update.

I have just resent it (bounced again). Thank you for noticing. I tend
not to subscribe to lists for just one post, that's why I posted
without subscribing. There's also no indication on
I use Vc and I'd like to release software relying on it, but I don't
want to require users to download and build from source, so I'd like
to see a recent version of vc-dev in the package sources, but the
package in the package sources is (very) out of date. A recent version
of the sources is available from
which suggests to me that 17.04 is set to use the same old version. So
I now try to contact this list (it's listed as the maintainer), since
I feel I've done what I can and I don't know what else to do. I don't
want to merely complain, if there is anything I can do to help sort
this out, I'd like to know, and I'd like something to happen before
17.04 comes out.
