Hello everyone,

I want to adopt an orphan package but I don't know what should I do to
make myself granted to do that. Could anyone offer me some help?

Thanks.

If it's listed here:-
http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/

See here:-

If there's no an existing bug report for the package, create one, then adopt it.

I haven't tried this, but was considering doing so last year - the process may have changed since then. I'm assuming you have some knowledge of packaging.


Cheers
