Finished?

And I really find unacceptable to "solve" this with a stack of unmaintained software which clearly it's not in it's best shape. This wouldn't be a problem if it had someone taking care of it in the upstream side, of course. So there are only two ways out here: - Find someone to take care of sni-qt as upstream and then another one (or the same person) to take care of the package. - Let people start porting their stuff to Qt5. Yes, this might be the most troublesome right now, but they will have to do it at some point. -- Lisandro Damián Nicanor Pérez Meyer http://perezmeyer.com.ar/ http://perezmeyer.blogspot.com/
