"[2002/02/06 23:55] PixiePlus[2] now supports similar image finding
using an algorithm based on mine, and for those unable to run a current
version of KDE, gqview[3] will also find your similar images, albeit
using a different algorithm whose results I haven't compared with my
own. Both are FAR faster than findimagedupes and, I would say, both make
it obsolete. If someone else would like to continue its development for
web or other non-GUI purposes (this means you, Debian maintainers ;) ),
by all means feel free, but consider my itch scratched."
Thus I may think it is enough (no more upstream activity, abadonned more
than three years ago, has other and problably better alternatives) to
remove this package, but let others do the choice.
