Right ... I meant that kmod-spice-usb-redirector was removed from the
distro (which is what we mistakenly released).
We could release both kspiceusb-kmod and spice-usb-redirector (they are
both open source) ... but we normally do not release things on the
Supplementary ISOs (GPL or not). That first release was a mistake.
Since 5.5 is going into the vault, we can do one of two things here ...
not release the 2 supplementary files (our normal practice), or release
them if there are people currently using our kmod-spice-usb-redirector.
I am open to either solution ... but if someone does not convince me
they need those 2 packages, I vote for let it die since it should not
have been released. I can be persuaded, however, if people need it.
