I'm orphaning hal-flash because Flash is already going toward EOL gradually
and there is alternatives for it, so it's time to orphan.

Here is the hal-flash repository:

If you want to be the new maintainer, please see for detailed
instructions how to adopt a package properly.

The package detail(debian/control) is:

  Source: hal-flash
  Priority: optional
  Maintainer: Kentaro Hayashi <>
    debhelper-compat (= 11),
  Standards-Version: 4.2.1
  Section: libs

  Package: libhal1-flash
  Architecture: any
  Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}, ${misc:Depends}, udisks2
  Suggests: flashplugin-nonfree
  Description: Compatibility library to allow playback of Flash DRM content
   A libhal stub library forwarding to UDisks specifically to satisfy the / libadobecp requirements.
   It is loosely based upon libhal.[ch] from the hal-0.5.14 package
   for the external interface presented by the shared library libhal.
   Further information on HAL can be found here:
   The Adobe Flash web browser plugin for Linux relies upon libhal to provide
   information required by libadobecp (which retrieves
   from the internet) for playing back drm content.
   Since HAL is no longer centric to most modern Linux systems (now there
   are succeeded product such as UDev, UDisks and so on).
   This library provides thin wrapper until such time as HTML5 becomes
   standard for online TV (many sites continue to use Flash).
