Possible problems in your Debian packages

Hey Free,

As you can see in the quoted text below, we get "spammed" by DDPO
mails. While I greatly appreciate these mails, the fact that the package
has an unfixed RC bug since September makes me believe that nobody from
the MOTU team actually cares about this package in Debian.

As uploader of this package, could you have a look? I find it a bit odd
that this package has the motu mailing list as its maintainer. Maybe I
missed something, but do we MOTUs as a whole really and actually
maintain madfuload in debian? Perhaps pkg-multimedia is a better home
for this package? Or is it so buggy that we should remove it from
debian? (I have honestly did not look deeper into this.)
