The following distributions will no longer be available after the
perl-5.32 release as they have been deprecated upstream:

perl-Gnome2                                  Achim Gratz
perl-Gnome2-Canvas                           Achim Gratz
perl-Gnome2-GConf                            Achim Gratz
perl-Gnome2-Rsvg                             Achim Gratz
perl-Gnome2-VFS                              Achim Gratz
perl-Gnome2-Vte                              Achim Gratz
perl-Gnome2-Wnck                             Achim Gratz
perl-Gtk2                                    Achim Gratz
perl-Gtk2-GladeXML                           Achim Gratz
perl-Gtk2-Notify                             Achim Gratz
perl-Gtk2-SourceView2                        Achim Gratz
perl-Gtk2-Spell                              Achim Gratz
perl-Gtk2-Unique                             Achim Gratz
perl-Gtk2-WebKit                             Achim Gratz

There are no external dependencies to these, so please just mark them as
OBSOLETE.

Further obsoletions:

perl-Win32

The version in perl-5.32 core is up-to-date, so that package no longer
serves a purpose.


Regards,
Achim.

Jon,
any objection ?

last time I added OBSOLETE you reversed it.
But maybe as I also moved the package from arch to noarch tree.

Marco

There is nothing to do on the release area for these, the old packages
for perl-5.30 can be kept for a while, but there won't be any new ones
for perl-5.32 and later.

Unfortunately, calm currently checks that packages marked as 'OBSOLETE' 
are actually obsoleted.

So at the moment, it's ok to make that change in cygwin-pkg-maint, after 
obsoletion has happened.

Hi Jon,
how we should manage the obsolescence ?

I think these all depend on 'perl5_030' (which is provided by a single 
remaining version of perl) or 'perl5_026' (which nothing provides anymore)

Long-term, I think calm should be taught to expire (= move to the vault) 
packages which are no longer installable because their requires don't 
exist any more.

I'm not sure if you have access the ~cygwin-admin/bin/vault script (note 
this takes a shell glob as an argument which should match a specific 
package & version, if you want to manually do that...

(I think we need to retain packages there rather than remove them 
totally for legal reasons)

This should probably be obsoleted by perl, then?
