[Pkg-e-devel] Bug#850844: python-edbus: Should this package be removed? (dead upstream, nothing depends on it)

Package: python-edbus
Version: 0.5.0+r49577-1
Severity: wishlist
User: debian-qa at lists.debian.org
Usertags: proposed-removal

python-edbus appears to be dead upstream: it is no longer available
from <https://download.enlightenment.org/rel/bindings/python/>, and its
git repository
was last touched in 2012.

In Debian, the last maintainer upload was 2011 and there has been no
sign of activity since my NMU in 2015. dak reports that nothing depends
on it:

> smcv at coccia ~ % dak rm -R -n python-edbus
> Will remove the following packages from unstable:
> python-edbus | 0.5.0+r49577-1.2 | source, amd64, arm64, armel, armhf, hurd-i386, i386, kfreebsd-amd64, kfreebsd-i386, mips, mips64el, mipsel, powerpc, ppc64el, s390x
> Checking reverse dependencies...
> No dependency problem found.

I'm aware that I've probably left it too late to remove this package from
Debian 9, but I don't think it should be in Debian 10.

If you agree, please reassign this bug to the archive administrators
by sending these commands to control at bugs.debian.org, replacing nnnnnn
with the bug number:

severity nnnnnn normal
reassign nnnnnn ftp.debian.org
retitle nnnnnn RM: python-edbus -- RoQA; obsolete, no reverse dependencies

Conversely, if you think this package should remain in Debian, please
close this bug.
