RM: dimbl -- ROM; ROM, abandoned upstream (was: Re: Bug#917700: dimbl: FTBFS: build-dependency not installable: libtimbl4-dev)

thanks

Hi Balint,

Since Maarten "proycon" van Gompel--a collegue of your dimbl comaintainer Ko
van der Sloot--told me he expects no new upstream release of dimbl, I feel it's
best to ask for dimbl's removal from testing and unstable.  Is that OK with
you?

Thanks, Bye,

Joost

Severity: normal

Hi,

Please remove dimbl from both testing and unstable: no new upstream release
is expected.  Debian's users are better served without dimbl in the upcoming
stable release.  See also https://bugs.debian.org/917700 "FTBFS:
build-dependency not installable: libtimbl4-dev" for some discussion.

Bye,

Joost
