Subject: RM: leiningen -- obsolete
Package: leiningen
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

As the author of Leiningen, I would like to see the current package in
Debian removed. I field support questions on IRC on a regular basis
from users who install the 1.x version in Debian, but it is too old to
be used on most modern codebases.

I know there is an effort to get Leiningen 2.x packaged, but it's
doubtful whether this will happen in time for Jessie; in either case the
existing package is not helping. There are no reverse dependencies on
Leiningen as far as I can tell.

I have tried to contact the debian-java-maintainers on IRC but haven't
gotten a response on this subject.
