[Pkg-ime-devel] Bug#714649: RM: im-switch -- ROM; Planned migration to im-config

Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: normal

This package was released for wheezy only as a stop gap for people to
migrate to im-config with the minimal problem.

As announced in README.Debian, let's remove this from wheezy+1=jessie.

Here is the situation:

osamu at ries:~$ dak rm -Rn im-switch
Working... done.
Will remove the following packages from unstable:

 im-switch |       1.23 | source, all

Maintainer: Osamu Aoki <osamu at debian.org>

------------------- Reason -------------------
wheezy was released with im-switch with its README.Debian stating:

im-switch for Debian
!  im-switch is deprecated for Wheezy.                                  !
!  Please migrate to im-config                                          !

If you were using im-switch without much complicated configuration, 
simply removing im-switch and installing im-config is sufficient.

If there are many users on your system, please inform them in advance to 
run the im-config command to set a new configuration after the transition.

This package is kept in this shape only for preventing system upgrade from
Squeeze system with dist-upgrade to install im-config automatically.  You
are given extra time to inform users including yourself.

This package will be droped completely for Wheezy+1.

Checking reverse dependencies...
# Broken Depends:
kinput2: kinput2-common

Dependency problem found.

The kinput2-common problem is due to the non-action of maintainer to my
bug report in 2011: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=651524

I just made NMU to fix it.  So this is non-issue.
