Otherwise, I agree it is better to remove the package than have them broken there.
Thank you Aline, Frederic and Ernst for all your feedback,
per comments #8 #16 #25 and #29 I think we reached consensus and should remove the following packages from the archive in Artful:
- not maintained
- no further dependencies on them that would block
Looking for an archive admin that is willing to consider removing them.
Unassigning from Frederic and subscribing ~ubuntu-archive so one can pick.
FYI - For users who come here "missing" these packages (well likely missing a working version).
The projects strategy itself seems to be self provided deb's - while I don't like that you can get it at .
Furthermore there is a ppa maintained by IBM which you could use at .
But also please read the referred comments and links if you really want that.
