I appreciate the efforts to streamline Caffeine in versions 2.6 and 2.7. However, my feeling is that these more recent versions aren't much related to the Caffeine that I've grown to know and love.

In my view, Caffeine pretty much reached its pinnacle at version 2.5. So I agree with post #35 by heynnema, namely that version 2.5 should enter a "maintenance mode" to ensure that it continues to work in future Ubuntu series . (Fortunately, version 2.5 still installs and works well, at least for me, in Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10.)

How about maintaining version 2.5 in "maintenance mode" (as suggested by heynnema) and forking the more recent version as something like "Caffeine Lite" or similar?
