Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: normal

Control: affects -1 + src:virtaal

The virtaal source package has not seen upstream development for a few
years. There was a flurry of work to try to update it to Python 3 and
gtk3 that was never really completed. A mostly-working preview was
uploaded in 2019 but changes in gtk3 since then leave it as a
mostly-non-working version.

It's time to say farewell to virtaal - at least for the time being. If
upstream development restarts, then it's easy to reintroduce it.

For users looking for alternatives:
 - poedit is a capable desktop application
 - weblate is a capable web app
