Looking for Webmin in Debian Stable/Testing?

Have you ever wandered why you cannot find a webmin package via apt-cache search webmin any longer like I did? Or is it just the question that came up why webmin has gone since Debian Etch and is only available in oldstable, aka Sarge? I have never really used it myself more than the obligatory try-out but was going to test it a little more these days. But I was surprised not to find anything. After a little googling Debians’ own wiki gave a hint to bug #343897. Well, the answer is as simple as this: The package former maintainer, Jaldhar H. Vyas, seams to have always ended up doing all the work on his own and finally couldn’t motivate himself any longer. Sad, but I guess that’s how life goes! If it’s worth it for someone package support will be reintroduced to Debian. Right in terms of “survival of the fittest”.

    One important issue is that when you are searching for a education loan you may find that you’ll need a cosigner. There are many circumstances where this is correct because you might discover that you do not employ a past credit history so the mortgage lender will require that you’ve got someone cosign the loan for you. Great post.
