Bug#520441: RM: gtk+1.2 -- ROM; deprecated for 8 years, no security support

Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: normal

Please remove gtk+1.2 from unstable. The last upstream release was 8 
years ago, and there isn’t any kind of maintenance happening on it, 
either upstream or in Debian.

This will immediately make all reverse dependencies uninstallable, but 
this is desirable. Those who can’t be updated will need to be removed as 
well. They have had plenty of time to switch to GTK+ 2.X now. We 
shouldn’t be struggling with GTK+ 1.2 while already planning the 
introduction of GTK+ 3. 

 .''`.      Debian 5.0 "Lenny" has been released!
: :' :
`. `'   Last night, Darth Vader came down from planet Vulcan and told
  `-    me that if you don't install Lenny, he'd melt your brain.
