Hi,

We will drop deprecated packages support. "Deprecated
packages" means that "it will be deprecated at GNOME3"
and/or "we doesn't have maintainer of it". Because we
doesn't have enough resources to maintain deprecated
packages.

Here are package list. "x" means that "it's a deprecated
package" and "o" means that "it's *not* a deprecated
packages". The list is created by Masaaki Aoyagi. (Thanks!)

  atk             o
  bonobo          x
  bonoboui        x
  gconf           x (GSettings in GIO)
  gdk_pixbuf2     o
  gio2            o
  glib2           o
  gnome           x
  gnomecanvas     x
  gnomeprint      x
  gnomeprintui    x
  gnomevfs        x
  goocanvas       o
  gstreamer       o
  gtk2            o
  gtkglext        o
  gtkhtml2        x
  gtkmozembed     o
  gtksourceview   x
  gtksourceview2  o
  libart          x
  libglade        x
  panel-applet    x (replaced wit hGNOME-Shell)
  pango           o
  poppler         o
  rsvg2           o
  vte             o

Here is dropping steps:

  1. We create a path for deprecated packages in the
     repository. Its URL will be
       https://ruby-gnome2.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/ru...

  2. We move each deprecated package to the above URL from
     trunk step by step.

     For example, in bonobo case, we move
       https://ruby-gnome2.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/ru...
     to
       https://ruby-gnome2.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/ru...
     .

Deprecated packages will not be released new version. (It
may be fixed a critical bug but will not be fixed other
bugs. Because we doesn't have a maintainer for those
packages.)


If there is no objections, we will do this proposal.

Any comments?


Thanks,

It is a good decision to concentrate on some packages.
