Description Kevin Kofler 2008-02-02 15:24:47 EST
Description of problem:
kicker-compiz serves no useful purpose under a KDE 4 session and should 
therefore be retired for Fedora 9 and later according to the procedure under:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/PackageEndOfLife
It also has broken dependencies due to the kicker libraries no longer being 
available in Rawhide.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Any, under Fedora >= 9.

Additional info:
        kicker-compiz-3.5.4-4.fc8.i386 requires libkickermain.so.1
        kicker-compiz-3.5.4-4.fc8.i386 requires libtaskmanager.so.1
Comment 1 Xavier Lamien 2008-02-02 16:53:30 EST
I already plan to push kicker-compiz to EOF (currently no maintain it in rawhide).
until F-7 will be set to EOF as well.

Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2008-02-02 16:58:53 EST
You can (and should!) mark it dead.package in the devel branch and ask rel-eng 
to block it from Rawhide right now ( 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/PackageEndOfLife steps 1, 2, 3 
and 5). (When to put the package into RetiredPackages (step 4) is unclear to 
me.) That way, it will stop showing up in the broken dependency reports and it 
will also automatically go EOL once F8 (not F7) goes EOL.

pkg blocked.  I think we can close this now.
