Thanks, Petar; found out that I can update a package...

What I find quite worrying is that the search by email works too

Email addresses are somewhat scrambled in the info-files; so why does
this site publish the unscrambled version that can lead to quite a bit
of spam? This seems contrary to policies adhered to here.

I will ask the maintainer amdmi3 at amdmi3.ru
