I'm sorry to read that.  Thanks for the time and effort you invested
into these packages.

Since you're not mentioning "units", does that mean you keep up
maintainership for this package?

Other than that, is anybody willing to take over maintainership of
base-passwd and/or base-files?  While the base-passwd file is relatively
uncritical, especially the base-files package needs some work, to pick
up the stray bits of problems we collected over the time.

Anybody willing to take over a few bash scripts?
