Subject: O: euler -- an interactive mathematical program

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the euler package.

The code it's really old and not maintained.

The code contains a lot of errors (functions that return different types
instead the expecetd ones, illegal casts, illegal memories
allocations,..): probably this code could be acceptable 10 years ago..
but now I think it needs a rewriting that I have no time to do alone.

For the moment I will orphan the package, but I think it probably could
be safely removed from the archive.



The package description is:
 euler is an interactive program which does computations involving
 real and complex numbers, matrices, and intervals. It draws the functions
 in two or three dimensions.
 This package contains main program.

 euler      - interactive mathematical programming environment
 euler-doc  - documentation for the mathematical programming environment Euler
Closes: 286272 338949 375772
 euler (1.61.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release.
   * New maintainer. (closes: #338949)
   * Switched packaging to CDBS and set debhelper compat level to 5.
   * debian/control:
     - Since this version of Euler is a port to GTK+ 2, the build dependency on
       libgtk1.2-dev was changed to libgtk2.0-dev (>= 2.6.0).
     - Removed "galeon | www-browser" from the Recommends field because
       sensible-browser from the debianutils package is now the default browser
       in src/rc.h.
     - Moved euler-doc to section doc.
     - Added euler-doc resp. euler to euler's resp. euler-doc's Suggest field.
     - Added a list of features to Euler's long description.
     - Require debhelper (>= 5).
   * Fixed documentation URI using the patch from Davide Prina.
     (closes: #286272)
   * Added euler.desktop file from Vassilis Pandis. (closes: #375772)
   * Removed unnecessary debian/postinst script. Debhelper will create it, if
     it is needed for e.g. updating menus.
   * Added actual copyright information to debian/copyright.
   * Added debian/watch file.
