It is going to face removal of KDE 3 desktop from unstable and libgpod transition soon. This means it is going to need much work. I'm not saying it is not possible to do (ubuntu has done it and most work could be stolen from them), but given that: 1) Amarok 1 is _dead_ upstream, it is thing of the past and definitely not what final squeeze is going to have. 2) I'm no _longer interested_ in Amarok 1 at all hence I don't want to invest time in it. I'm currently heading towards asking for its temporal removal (until amarok 2) from testing (to unblock other transitions) rather than fixing the package. However, this letter should not be considered as removal request just yet. Amarok 2 is a big pain too since it currently depends on quite many experimental packages: KDE4, libmtp, debhelper and, most importantly, mysql- server-5.1. What is more, Amarok 2 works only on i386/amd64 at the moment (due to mysql-server-5.1 / MySQL embedded deficiencies). So don't worry, I'll resolve amarok mess myself one way or another. -- Modestas Vainius <firstname.lastname@example.org>
