[opensuse-factory] MATE - still maintained? Or time to drop it?
Hi all,

for two weeks already, MATE desktop is not installable on openSUSE
Tumbleweed. A bug was filed on July 1st [0]

Neither the bugowner nor any of the declared maintainers (all are added
to CC) reacted to the bug report.

Considering that MATE is, in its current form, not even installable (as
it still relies on dropped features from Xorg), I have to believe that
MATE is no longer actively maintained in openSUSE Tumbleweed.

Please, all: prove me wrong - send fixes to openSUSE:Factory (via the
devel prj, hopefuly fixes get accepted there) :)

I'd say, if this bug is not being addressed by end of the month, there
is no other chance than accepting MATE as unmaintained and dropping it
from Tumbleweed (which would defacto be no loss compared to the current
state)

Cheers,
Dominique
