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”.
