I just dropped packagekit and its dependencies.
Since there was not a single response to my previous mail I just assume there is no interest at all.
Packages maintained by me: - packagekit - apper - packagekit-qt
Packages not maintained by my that i have dropped: - gnome-packagekit - mate-applet-sotfupd
NOTE: - nautilus seems to have a make dep on packagekit so that needs to be sorted out.
TODO: - packagekit in gnome-unstable can be dropped too - gnome-packagekit is in staging
All leftover packages are related to gnome-unstable efforts. If someone wants to bring back packagekit, feel free.
