hamster-applet isn't in the Fedora 18 repos, yet it was rebuilt for Fedora 18 with the mass rebuild back in July:
is there a reason it wasn't pushed, or was it just an oversight?
This was done on purpose as I have orphaned the package.
I'm assuming it was merely orphaned because of the Gnome3/applets situation?
Considering that MATE is being featured in Fedora 18, would it be possible to bring hamster-applet back for that desktop?
I added vicodan to this bug (I don't know if that is proper protocol, so if I botched this, I apologize Dan), as he has already ported many of the Gnome2 applets to MATE.
Can we consider this an RFE to port hamster-applet to MATE, and add it back to the F18 repos?
I orphaned it because upstream had been almost dead for a long time and because I didn't have the time to take proper care of bugs, etc.
It appears now that development is picking up again at the github page:
However it also looks like the applet part has been completely removed - so it probably doesn't make any sense to tie this in with MATE.
If this is to be packaged again I recommend changing the name to hamster-time-tracker.
Just an FYI:
I think we should leave this package as a dead package. Upstream is now properly differentiating hamster-time-tracker and applets for mate + gnome-shell extensions etc. I've packaged hamster-time-tracker but will submit it as a completely new package.
