As a notice, the following packages will not be brought to 1.0 unless
another contributor packages them. This list is a part of the "alpha7
missing list", which are packages that we shipped when we were an Alpine
fork. When we converted to our own package tree, these packages were
deemed unfit to "bring with us" and needed to be completely repackaged.
Complex and not actively used by any of our current users.
Build-time test suite software unused by any software we package.
Unmaintained encoding guessing library (like libguess, which we already
ship via audacious-plugins) that was, at one time, used by libass for
closed captioning. Has not been used in years.
Build-time dependency for syslog-ng, which we have replaced with sysklog.
Cryptography library used by GNOME. We don't currently ship GNOME; this
will be revisited if/when we do.
RAD user interface design tool. Unused by any software we package.
GNU's fork is unmaintained and outdated, with possible security holes.
Only used to compress monochromatic scanned images. Virtually useless.
No longer used by any software we package.
Dependency of avahi, which we have not yet ported. This will be
revisited if/when we port avahi.
Only used by ClamAV. Will be revisited if/when we ship ClamAV.
Deprecated and replaced by nfs-utils.
Only used by old versions of BlueZ.
Only used by Motif, which we no longer ship.
Not currently used by any software we package. This will be revisited
if we consider shipping software that uses the Motif widget set.
Unnecessary as we ship dosfstools.
Complex and unused by any current user of Adélie.
Only used by DirectFB, which we shipped at one point for attempted
compatibility with postmarketOS but no longer ship.
Most of the video drivers we don't ship are massively out of date and no
longer compile against the newest X.Org server. Those that do can be
considered at a later date.
