gnomecal won't be in the next release, dropped in favor of Evolution.
gnomecal isn't actively maintained upstream.
Comment 2 Tethys 2002-04-29 03:40:32 EDT
*Extremely* poor decision. gnomecal is small, lightweight, and does
exactly what it's designed to do and nothing more. Evolution is a
slow bloated app that tries to do everything. I just want a calendar.
I already have an email client. Plus I remain unconvinced about the
design decisions and security implications behind Evolution. Sigh.
Oh well, at least gnomecal will continue to live thanks to the GPL...
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-04-29 09:27:47 EDT
Well, it isn't really our decision. We can't afford to maintain every package
dropped by upstream maintainers ourselves, and this one has been dropped; no one
is working on it. Of course it's GPL, so if someone cares they _could_ work on
it... but at the moment no one is.
