Bug#831549: gnash: mtasc removal

Source: gnash
Severity: normal

I would like to remove mtasc from the Debian archive. It has been
unmaintained in Debian and upstream for years. The web ecosystem is
moving away from Flash towards standard web technologies, which can
now replace most use of Flash. Debian should encourage our upstreams
to move towards standard web technologies like HTML5 and JavaScript.
Please talk to your upstreams about transitioning away from
ActionScript 2 towards HTML5 JavaScript. If they need to still
support Flash for some users, then they should switch to something
like Haxe.
