    I intend to orphan the xmlto package as announed here [1] and here [2]:

    Xmlto is a script using docbook-xsl, fop, dblatex and many other tools as backends to process DocBook and more generally XML and convert it to any
    output format. There are open bug reports. The upstream author is active;
    still there is not much activity around the development of the software.

    Preferably the new maintainer has a good understanding of bash scripting
    and the toolchains involved.

    The package description is: XML-to-any converter
    xmlto is a front-end to an XSL toolchain. It chooses an appropriate
    stylesheet for the conversion you want and applies it using an external
    XSLT processor (currently, only xsltproc is supported). It also performs
    any necessary post-processing.
    It supports converting from DocBook XML to DVI, XSL-FO, HTML and XHTML
    (one or multiple pages), epub, manual page, PDF, PostScript and plain
    text. It also supports converting from XSL-FO to DVI, PDF and PostScript.
    DVI output requires dblatex or PassiveTeX. Other formats can be produced
    with any of the supported toolchains - dblatex, PassiveTeX or
    docbook-xsl/fop (but may require some extensions).
