Source: debian-design
Version: 3.0.7
Severity: wishlist

The MIA team was in contact with the gcolor2 package and the maintainer suggests
to remove gcolor2 from the archives, replacing it with an better alternative.

As design-desktop-graphics depends on gcolor2, please remove this dependency from
your package. It seems that it can be replaced by gpick, which has more features and
seems to be also still active upstream

Many thanks!
