Subject: gnome-utils: gfloppy missing from debian
Date: Thu, 11 Mar 2010 11:37:04 +0100
Subject: gnome-utils: gfloppy missing from debian
Package: gnome-utils
Version: 2.28.1-1
Severity: normal

gfloppy has been moved from gnome-utils to its own repository
(git.gnome.org/gfloppy) in the GNOME 2.28 development cycle upstream.
It is also missing in the debian GNOME 2.28 series.

IMHO gfloppy is the best floppy formating tool on linux ever and I'd
like you
to create a new debian gfloppy package.

Thank you very much

Given the total uselessness of a floppy disk-related program on a modern
computer, the only tool we support is gnome-disk-utility.

As for gfloppy, this is now a RFP (request for packaging).
