Now the only thing left is to think of how I may possibly pass on the
knowledge so that people stop using checkinstall.


Or plan to find a better package than the one you intend to drop
PRIOR to planning to drop something.

Of course this first requires that you grant that a package
has some purpose, even if not for you, and that the people who
developed it in the first place as well as those who use it
deserve a little respect.

Well, just to interrupt this friendly conversation....
Eventhough "package-management" decided to drop the package for probably
good reasons, Nobody stops you from storing the package on the OBS,
where it can live happily ever after, not?

If it needs maintenance, drop a line to:
"Felipe Eduardo Sanchez Diaz Duran <izto@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>"

As he is the original author of the code.
