FYI work fluctuates for me - this and next week is busy (limited/no
updates from me), then I have some free time again.

Finding a new maintainer would be easiest, I've almost finished SynCE
0.15; becoming a dev would obviously take longer.

Happy to hear suggestions,

Saved this one for wine-doors as req. for orange.

 This sucks. *synce* stuff is covered in a our documentation,
 including a PDA guide and a debugging HowTo. Any chance of holding
 off on the mask/removal?

Added longer removal date. 2011-01-01.

Unfortunately 0.14 is in so bad shape there's nothing worth stabilizing
for when every single package comes with missing depends, wrong python
usage, other random bugs... and previous versions are even more of a mess.

That means feel free to restrict the masks to 0.15 like libsynce is
now, as proper ebuilds get committed to tree.

The bug 340007 you're citing shows that people are working on adding
the next version but are not done yet.  What's the point of this
masking/removal besides fucking up the installation of people who use
the software?

  OG.

Watch your language. Nobody with commit access is working on it, the bug
has only comments from users (and a retired developer in CC list).

Samuli,

there was a very recent thread in this ml about these packages and the
conclusion was that they fall to the pda herd. The proxy-user also asked
for help and showed interest in working to become a developer.
As such, did you contact the pda herd about these packages? Did peper
drop the herd from these packages?
Waiting more than 1 day to kill these wouldn't hurt us.
