Hi

The maintainer of this package wants to orphan this package together
with the package dctc.

Some more information:
Package: dcgui
Priority: optional
Section: gnome
Description: Direct Connect Graphical client (GTK+) (peer-based
file-sharing)
 dc_gui is a gtk front-end for the dctc program. dctc handles all
 communication with dc hubs and clients, while dcgui presents an
 interface that has many of the features of the original directconnect
 client, plus some really useful improvements.
 .
 It is intended for peer-based file-sharing. In practise it works better
than
 gnutella and other similar systems as it allows dc hubs (servers)
 administators to require clients to share specified amount of data. The
 amount is usually based on type of client's connection and it is used not
 to hurt or exclude anybody but to make file sharing "fair play".
 .
 dcgui is still alpha, so some care has to be taken - try it out!
Tag: uitoolkit::gtk

Cheers

Luk

I believe this package should be removed from Debian:

 1) There has not been a sourceful upload of this package since January
    2004 (and has been orphaned since October 2005).

    This in itself would not be a strong argument, but in those five years
    DC++ protocols and clients have moved on somewhat and dcgui cannot
    connect to most hubs (and can connect to even fewer clients).

 2) It has an excellent (GTK-based) replacement, linuxdcpp.

 3) The UI is simply *awful*. Just run it and you'll see what I mean. Just,
    wow.


Regards,
