After having been a heavy LyX user from 2005 to 2010 I've continued to maintain LyX more or less till now. Finally I'm starting to leave that stage and removed myself from the Uploaders list. The upload with some other last packaging changes is currently sitting in the git repo. Mainly because lintian on ftp-master currently rejects 'pakagename@packages.d.o' maintainer addresses (the alternative to the lists.alioth.d.o maintainer mailinglists). For elyxer I filled a request for removal. It hasn't seen any upstream activity for a while and the LyX build in HTML export support improved.

My hope is that if I step away far enough someone else might actually pick it up. I had this strange moment when I lately realized that xchat got reintroduced to Debian after mapreri and myself spent some time last year to get it removed before the stretch release.
