Default Retiring gnome-applet-netspeed

Hello,

today I have decided to retire gnome-applet-netspeed. The upstream
repository has not seen a single commit which is not a translation in
ages, and with abrt running I'm getting crash reports filed every now
and then [1-3].
So, I think that the best way to handle this case is to retire the
package. That is, unless somebody with necessary skills is willing to
pick it up. I'll wait a few days and then I'll start the retirement
process if no one speaks up.

Julian

Hi,

As a frequent user of gnome-applet-netspeed I'd like to see this package
remain in Fedora. I just took a quick look at the three crashes and my
guess is that there's some memory corruption involved as the crashes
occur in other libraries (pulseaudio, pango and gtk+) where it's
doubtful that those other libraries are the cause. Personally I haven't
had any crashes with the applet lately, but I'll try to investigate the
bugs asap.

Regards,

Erik van Pienbroek

I use this program too, the problem is that I just don't have the skills
to fix the issues. I can orphan the package and let you take it over
instead.

There goes another one:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=562014
Anyway, since seems that quite a few people are using this piece of
software, I have decided to orphan it instead of retiring. I'll release
the ownership in pkgdb in a few moments.
