Package: src:libappindicator
Severity: serious

The libappindicator package is currently QA team maintained in Debian and shall be phased out hopfully during the buster release cycle. The alternative (maintained upstream and Debian-downstream) is libayatana-appindicator.

There is a lot of porting work to do (little patches are required for each application), to let all AppIndicator aware applications build against the new and supported AppIndicator shared lib fork "libayatana-appindicator".

For details, please see [1]

For a list of applications that require porting and the porting status, see [2]

Greets,
Mike
