Bug#930676: goplay: Should this package be removed?

Julian Andres Klode-4
Package: goplay
Severity: serious

Hi folks,

goplay has not received any updates since 2015, it uses libept,
which we'd like to get rid of eventually I think, as it's also
unmaintained, so I think it would be best to remove it.

I agree with you in general. However, IMHO, can we defer this decision
to buster +1 or is this really imminent. AFAIK the package works for Buster?

Regards,

Markus

Sure, we can defer this until after the release.

With the release of Buster, looks like it's time to file removal request. I'm
sending RM bug to FTP Masters soon.

Thanks,
