Package: wnpp Severity: normal I intend to orphan the notify-osd package, with one RC bug and an outdated version. I CCed the the pkg-ayatana team and the debian-derivatives mailing list, as this is part of the Ubuntu user experience and maybe someone interested in Deb-Ubu-collaboration wants to maintain it. I have no use for this package anymore since quite some time already, and have no intent to maintain it anymore. I'm now also running GNOME 3 which has its own notification way. I maintain the packaging in https://code.edge.launchpad.net/~juliank/notify-osd/debian it is derived from the main branch of notify-osd and patches are maintained via bzr itself, just like the Ubuntu package. Also, fixing Bug #539050 in giver seems a good idea: giver should support notification daemon without 'actions' capability. The package description is: The Desktop Notifications framework provides a standard way of doing passive pop-up notifications on the Linux desktop. These are designed to notify the user of something without interrupting their work with a dialog box that they must close. Passive popups can automatically disappear after a short period of time. -- Julian Andres Klode - Debian Developer, Ubuntu Member See http://wiki.debian.org/JulianAndresKlode and http://jak-linux.org/.
