Package: src:ido
Severity: serious

The IDO shared lib (Indicator Display Objects) is deprecated in Debian and shall be phased out during the buster release cycle.


Applications using it (mostly indicator renderers) shall switch over to src:ayatana-ido instead. The following renderers of indicators have already been ported to ayatana-ido:

  mate-indicator-applet
  xfce4-indicator-plugin

Another renderer has a bug with a patch filed:

  budgie-indicator-applet

So, the current status is: Once that budgie-indicator-applet has been ported, src:ido can be removed from Debian.
