Hi,

Yesterday kdelibs from KDE 3 was removed from the archive (#619728).
Lisandro and I are working now in arts b-d to be also removed in a few 
weeks. There are ~5 packages that need an upload, but we are taking
it more calmly that kdelibs' removal.

The next step is Qt3 orphaning. The removal of Qt3 from the archive
before Wheezy, assuming a release in ~2 years, seems complicated:

- there is a the high number of packages using it (~100, see attached file)
- if we remove it, we do not longer comply the last version of Linux Standard 
Base in Debian, which seems important for some folks.
- there are a lot of scientific software using it, not always packaged into
Debian, and they would have a problem if we remove it from Wheezy.
- personally, I have been convinced leaving Qt3 around is not so
dangerous as leaving kdelibs3. And seems like a good idea as long
as I am not a Qt3 maintainer :D

In any case, some QA work removing/updating some rotten packages using Qt3 
is a very good idea.

So, what we do now? Before doing a final upload orphaning it, I am more
inclined to email debian-devel@ and do a call for new maintainers.
If in 2 weeks after the call nobody steps up, we do a QA upload orphaning
and doing the last changes we want done [1], and if it gets maintainer,
we ask them to do those changes in their adopting upload.

Ana

Right now only contains:
-lower the qmake alternative
-consider dropping embedded stuff, lot of qt4 is conflicting with it
