Package: wnpp

Here's another casualty of the GTK2 transition. Skipstone is a GTK1
browser that uses mozilla's gtkmozembed component. Ever since sid's
mozilla was compiled against GTK2 (unfortunate IMHO, since the GTK2
port has awful non-native scrollbars), Skipstone has simply been broken.
I do not believe that it will work in a Debian context unless it is
ported to GTK2 itself. This is not something I'm up to, one of the
major reasons being that I can't/don't use Skipstone anymore. Upstream
hasn't updated this project in a long time. The CVS server isn't even
up anymore. If anyone wants to do this port, ITA the package. If no
one does, I'll request its removal from the repository.

Bug closed, send any further explanations to Aaron Lehmann <> Request was from Martin Michlmayr <> to Full text and rfc822 format available.
