[I'm CC'ing the maintainers of any of the packages listed below.]
I have prepared a list of some more GNOME 1 specific packages that
should be removed from pkgsrc (remember that a lot of them were already
nuked not so long ago). The reason is that they are obsolete, no longer
maintained by the mainstream authors and make some global changes in
pkgsrc more difficult. I guess some of them may even have security
vulnerabilities, even if not discovered yet.
To create the list I've grepped for all the packages depending on
gnome-libs. Then, I examined them one by one, removing the ones that
are needed for gnucash, and others that are not dead but should be
updated to their respective GNOME 2 versions (such as mrproject).
The list of packages is:
x11/rep-gtk (removing this one means removing sawfish*)
Does anybody see any compelling reason to keep any of these? (Not
"someone, somewhere may need it", please.)
Could we do this cleanup before the branch is cut?
