Subject: Please remove pcmcia-modules-2.4.27-i386 from unstable
Date: Tue, 14 Feb 2006 17:46:58 +0100
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]


pcmcia-modules-2.4.27-i386 is obsolete, the PCMCIA modules provided
with the kernel should be used instead. In addition, it doesn't build
anymore and I'm not interested in fixing it (I'm the maintainer).

There might still be a small set of hardware where the kernel-provided
modules do not work, but nobody else seem to be interested in working
on the package, and I think it would be better to try to make the
in-kernel modules work instead than supporting this old obsolete

Therefore, please remove it. Thanks.
