Taketoshi Sano has volunteered to fix any "real bugs" in the Debian
Package of sgml-tools (v1).  He also mentioned his "motivation to
maintain this package :)".  So it is sort of being maintained.  In
contrast the sgmltools (v2) site says "The SGML tools project has been
suspended".  Thus it's not at all clear that sgml-tools (v1) is
obsolete, especially since LDP is still requiring Linuxdoc which needs
it and also since the sgmltools (v2) project is officially suspended.
