Is it planned to remove Unity 8 and related packages (such as apps) from
Artful, or the plan is to keep them in universe for some more time?
We are currently working on updating Qt to 5.9 LTS, and two major things that
concern us are:
* qtubuntu (the Qt MIR binding).
Both of these packages are broken with Qt 5.9, and because they extensively
use Qt private API, fixing them may be not easy.
ubuntu-ui-toolkit is even in main because it is used by checkbox-converged.
It would be really nice to get *at least* qtubuntu removed, if nobody is going
to work on it. For ubuntu-ui-toolkit I guess the first step would be demoting
it to universe by removing checkbox-converged from desktop (or porting it to
some other toolkit like Qt Quick Controls 2).
One more thing that concerns us is Oxide, but as I understand it is already
getting removed as part of LP: #1688395.
Any thoughts / comments / objections?
