HwB uploaded to Debian Mentors

I have not received a response to the inquiry [1] about the possibility of getting a new snapshot of the Hardware Book site for a new package, so proceeded with updating the package using the existing snapshot.

Updated the package, built it, then uploaded it to the mentors.debian.net site.
dupload -f -t mentors hwb_040412-3_i386.changes

Emailed an RFS (Request for Sponsor) to the d.d.mentors list. [2]

HwB snapshot inquiry

Inquired via email to hwb@hardwarebook.net as follows:
> I am taking over as the maintainer for the HwB Debian package. The current version
> in Debian is from back in April of 2004; would it be possible to get a newer snapshot of > the site, so that I can package that?

HwB files at Rocasa

Obtained copies of HwB (Hardware Book) archives from the Debian repositories and put them online here [1] so that I would have something to work with.

ITA - The Hardware Book

'The Hardware Book' is a Debian package [1] which "contains misc technical information about computers and other electronic devices", and which was orphaned back in April of 2006 [2]. Today I sent an email that retitles it as an ITA (Intend to Adopt) and changing the owner to myself.
