Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the notify-osd package, with one RC
bug and an outdated version.

I CCed the the pkg-ayatana team and the debian-derivatives
mailing list, as this is part of the Ubuntu user experience
and maybe someone interested in Deb-Ubu-collaboration wants
to maintain it.

I have no use for this package anymore since quite some time
already, and have no intent to maintain it anymore. I'm now
also running GNOME 3 which has its own notification way.

I maintain the packaging in 

it is derived from the main branch of notify-osd and patches
are maintained via bzr itself, just like the Ubuntu package.

Also, fixing Bug #539050 in giver seems a good idea:
  giver should support notification daemon without 'actions' capability.

The package description is:
 The Desktop Notifications framework provides a standard way of doing
 passive pop-up notifications on the Linux desktop.  These are
 designed to notify the user of something without interrupting their
 work with a dialog box that they must close.  Passive popups can
 automatically disappear after a short period of time.
