Hi
Can piklab be added to the distro, its stable and runs Ok on
wheesy/sid.
The is no alternative except for trying to run MPLAB ina VC and
windows.

Its a shame to see such a good package disappear.
TIA


Perhaps you could consider maintaining it?

Unless you're suggesting that Richard maintain KDE3, too, that doesn't
seem like very practical advice.

Following the links from <http://packages.qa.debian.org/piklab>, I see
that piklab was removed because it unfortunately has no KDE4 port. So
if you would like to see it back in Debian, a good strategy might be
to port it to KDE4[1] and then file a request for package[2].

Sincerely,
Jonathan

My last reply completely missed the point. According to [1] the
program was already ported to Qt 4.

Sorry for the noise! Salvo's advice is excellent --- preparing and
maintaining a package using the pointers from [2] would be greatly
appreciated. (Otherwise, feel free to file a "request for package"
bug and help whoever responds to it in whatever way you can.)

sorry my reply went to Jonathan and not to the list.
according to sid buglist on piklab the maintainer is
"Maintainers for piklab are Miriam Ruiz <little_miry@yahoo.es>"
I'm prepared to help keep this app available if that would help..
