Control: retitle -1 barnowl: uses libnet-irc-perl, which is abandoned upstream Control: tag -1 fixed-upstream Control: severity 608583 serious -=| Ansgar Burchardt, 03.09.2011 13:43:21 +0200 |=- > Package: barnowl > Version: 1.6.2-1+b2 > Severity: important > > As libnet-irc-perl has been unmaintained since 2004, we would like to > remove the package from Debian before the wheezy release. Please > switch to an alternative library such as libpoe-component-irc-perl. Net::IRC dependency is removed upstream in version 1.8, released October 2011. Since barnowl is the only remaining package with a hard dependency on libnet-irc-perl, and since there is a fix upstream, I am raising the severity of #608583 to make libnet-irc-perl get out of jessie. This will remove barnowl too, unless the package is upgraded to a newer upstream release. On a side note, adding Homepage to barnowl's control file would be nice. The upstream project is at http://barnowl.mit.edu/ . Ditto for debian/watch and debian/copyright.
