Hi Adam,

right. http://code.google.com/p/chmsee/ also suggests this, quote:

== Stop maintain ==

ChmSee is not being developed anymore. 
I haven't read CHM documents more than a year, new and update IT books are 
pdfs or epubs, so it's right time to end this chm viewer. 

== News ==

2013-08-25: Stop maintain. 
2013-06-28: Release ChmSee 2.0.2 to compatible with xulrunner 22. 
2013-04-22: Release ChmSee 2.0.1 to compatible with xulrunner 20. 
2013-01-18: Release ChmSee 2.0.
End of quote from there...

I've just dropped the chmsee recommends from the debian-edu source package, so 
this will go away in the future. I'll send another mail about debian-edu 
updates for wheezy 7.2 either later today or tomorrow (or worst case, 
thursday), but I dont think removing chmsee from wheezy will cause Debian Edu 
any harm, as we just recommend it.

So please go ahead! :-) (And thanks for informing us.)

Just in case I've cc:ed Andrew Lee on this, as he is a/the LXDE person in 
Debian and Debian Edu.
