Re: whither ical?


I have tried "ical" once. I think "plan" will also suit you.

Being an old-fashioned sort of guy, I've been using the Tcl-based ical

any idea of why and where it went?

A quick Google Groups (that never sounds as good as "DejaNews" did)
turned up this:


So, apparently, ical was pulled from Debian in early 2001 because it
was dead upstream, orphaned, and nobody wanted to take it over.

I don't know why, specifically, it got bounced from your machine, but
I'd assume it was because it depended on old libraries or old Tcl/Tk
infrastructure or whatever, which got upgraded when you went to sid.

-c (I used to use ical myself, as well)
