hi,

i don't understand? there's link, and there's links2. some people do want links,
it has features that links2 doesn't have and dependencies are smaller.

what do you really want?

yours,
guerkan

Links 1.0 packaged into the links package, as it used to be.

My argument is (and was) that links 1 was still being developed and mantained and since links 2 is already packaged into links2 it would make sense to keep the plain old 'links' package with the traditional 1.0 branch.

Please, feel free to lower severity of this report to wishlist if you
deem it so.

Subject: Bug#509469 (links: links 1 is still available and it's not links2) is more or less a "request for packaging" (RFP)
Date: Wed, 20 Jul 2011 18:45:54 +0200
reassign 509469 wnpp
retitle 509469 RFP: links1 -- web browser from which links2 was forked
kthxbye

JFTR: The home page of Links 1 is http://www.jikos.cz/~mikulas/links/
and it's indeed still under developement. 1.01pre1 is from December
2009 and 1.01 is from March 2011.

So if anyone wants to reintroduce links1 into Debian, I (as links2
maintainer) am happily dropping or renaming the current links package
which is built from the links2 source package and is effectively
links2 without graphics support (and therefore with less heavy
dependencies).

		Regards, Axel
