The Debian Qt/KDE team is planning to remove aRts libraries from the archive.
This is due to the lack of upstream support for more than four years.
In order to make this move, all packages directly or indirectly depending on
aRts libraries have to get removed from the Debian repositories or get ported
Therefore, please take the time and:
- contact your upstream (if existing) and ask about the state of a Phonon
port of your application.
- if there are no activities regarding porting, investigate whether there are
suitable alternatives for your users.
- if there is a Phonon port that is not yet packaged, consider packaging it.
- if both the aRts and the Phonon version already coexist in the Debian
archives, consider removing the aRts version.
For any questions and issues, do not hesitate to contact the Debian Qt/KDE
team at debian-qt-kde at lists.debian.org
Kind regards, Lisandro.
