Subject: RM: august -- dead upstream, again orphaned, superseded by bluefish, quanta

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Severity: normal

Please remove august.
It was unmaintained for four years before it was taken by Mario.
It has an dead upstream (last version was 5 years before), is not really 
useful/usable and superseded by several other HTML-Editors like 
bluefish and quanta.

I disagree with Mario, we shouldn't wait 2 months longer, let's remove 
it now.

Kindly regards,

unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency
