Description of problem:
The release notes of Red Hat Linux 7.3 note that the gnome-pim package has been
removed.  I think that this is unfortunate because gnomecal and gnomecard are
nice, lightweight alternatives to evolution.  I am a fan of both and would like
to request that they be included in future Red Hat Linux versions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Try to install the gnome-pim package.

Actual Results:  Gnome-pim rpm is not included in Red Hat Linux 7.3+.

Expected Results:  Well, I guess gnome-pim should have been installed.

It's not maintained upstream. Until someone picks it up and actively maintains
it, not much we can do - it's guaranteed to bitrot eventually. There were
already quite a few unresolved bugs and issues a year ago when gnome-pim was
It'll only be worse now.

We try to avoid shipping software that isn't maintained since the bugs don't get
fixed, and it doesn't have any future.

A gentleman named Sebastian Rittau seems to be porting gnome-pim to GNOME2.  He
work is available at http://me.in-berlin.de/~jroger/gnome-pim.
