Agreed.  It is a useful functionality, but in no way essential.
Especially if it hasn't been working for a while (since dropped the RDF service).

Yep, please keep it going.  The Debian freeze is supposed to be in
effect in ten days, and anything we can get in before that date is
very likely to end up in the next stable release.

There's no need, I started to update them.  Already done
SimpleAgenda/0.42.2, BatMon/0.6, RSSKit/0.3, Grr/0.9.0 (soon to be
obsolete :-)) and I'm currently working on Zipper.  (BTW, there's a
bug reported against that I either don't understand or

PDFKit is a no-op for Debian, because of the security problems in
xpdf's code.  It took quite some time to get rid of the many embedded
xpdf sources, and now there's only the xpdf (the viewer) package which
is patched to use poppler.  I'm fairly confident that the Debian FTP
masters will REJECT PDFKit.

I'm delaying GWorkspace as I want to test it extensively.

For Terminal, I'm going to write to Gürkan about his stance regarding
upstream.  Next on my list are GNUMail, MPDcon and eventually AClock
(with Gürkan's consent), and at the end the games, if there's time.
