Maintainership of dvi-processing

Hello,

I wish for the dependencies of package dvi-processing to be updated to current versions. The listed maintainer ("AaronBlack") appears to be unsearchable on the internet (no mention on the name can be found in connection to the Haskell language, except has maintainer on Hackage). Hackage does not seem to want to reveal an email address either.

Hence I propose to take over maintainership of the package. I beg the powers that be to let me know if this would be possible, and if so when it can happen.

Many anticipated thanks,
JP Bernardy.

On this note, it seems that this package has never had an Author:
tag. It seems to me that this should be a prerequisite for upload to
package and as such `cabal check` should check for this.

Cheers,

Does cabal check work at the moment? If I try to use it, I get a 404
error in my terminal.

Works for me but I must say I may be a bit ahead of the curve in my
Cabal version,

    $ cabal -V
    cabal-install version 1.19.2
    using version 1.19.2 of the Cabal library

Don't listen to the devil, but you can do a pirate upload (at least that 
was possible on old hackage).  In case the original author rises from 
his coffin you can always hand author/maintainership back.

Re: Maintainership of dvi-processing

Nowadays to do that you'd need someone like Austin to go hack up the maintainers list for the package and add you.
