[Pkg-mozext-maintainers] Bug#976697: webext-umatrix: no longer developed upstream, remove or switch to LibreMatrix or?

Package: webext-umatrix
Version: 1.4.0+dfsg-1
Severity: seriousX-Debbugs-CC: Ximin Luo <infinity0 at debian.org>

uMatrix is no longer developed upstream:

   This repository has been archived by the owner. It is now read-only.

This was discussed on Hacker News at the time:


The upstream author has stated they no longer have time for it:

   I've archived uMatrix's repo, I can't and won't be spending any more
   time on this project, and neither on all such issues.

I think that uMatrix now isn't suitable to ship in bullseye.

These are the options for solving this issue:

uMatrix could be removed in favour of uBlock Origin's advanced mode.

uMatrix could be removed and LibreMatrix packaged, I think this is a
community fork so it should be a drop-in replacement.


Something else?
