Hi kou

Is there a process for unremoving/undeprecating packages?

There was a discussion a long time ago about the fact that the
PanelApplet package was marked as deprecated. There really didn’t seem
to be any reason apart from the module having no designated
‘maintainer’. But as the code was working, there didn’t seem to be any
reason to remove it. Since that time, the PanelApplet code was updated
by Detlef R…

Has something changed that means the code stopped working? Is there
something new that needs to be done to it for gem support?

Regards
Grant

  1. The package isn’t deprecated by the GTK+/GNOME team.
  2. We need an active maintainer for it.

No maintainer is a serious problem for us…
If our release includes a deprecated package and ithas a
bug, we will need to fix it. But we should work on supported
packages instead of deprecated packages. We only have
limited resources.

No. We still need just an active maintainer.

I’m sorry about our limited resources…

Thanks,
