[opensuse-factory] cinnamon

I know this is going to enable you in 'Wrath of God' mode, but
nevertheless I have to do it... There's a lot of reports from Cinnamon
not being working with proprietary drivers, it does with open source
drivers. To be honest, though it's just two packages, it's something
not worth the trouble to maintain... here's why:

1) We have 2 GNOME releases per cycle; this means 2 completly
different cinnamon's for every cycle;
2) Upstream development isn't either as active as we would like,
neither has been receptive to bugs outside Ubuntu/Debian; this is good
enough to drop this packages on the spot...
3) Fedora and openSUSE have been having a few issues with prelinking;
I can't fix this, goes way over the stuff I know.
4) Fedora has a lot of people trying to block cinnamon from being
available in Fedora due to how upstream is doing the development....

This to say... either someone takes cinnamon or it dies right here and
right now. I don't have time to go on crazy wild goose chases... and
maybe it's time to stop the crazy non-sense stuff I've been doing and
dedicate myself to hunting, which at least does provide food :)

I'm going to vaporize cinnamon and request deletion from Factory if
there are no objections and never look to the thing again :)
