For what it's worth, I think we can permanently remove Premail from
I've been "maintaining" it for some time, but there hasn't been an upstream
release in over a year, the upstream author doesn't use or work on it
anymore, and the licensing provisions are confusing as to whether I
would be allowed to fork the package (even if I wanted to).
Add to that the fact that many mail clients now provide nearly all the
features that Premail was designed to help with, and I think you can
agree that Premail's usefulness is limited.
Let's just get rid of it and be done with it.
