Bug Description

I did a clean install of 16.04LTS and now I can't install the reminder. I think it needs a release file ??. Below is from the terminal. Synaptic Package Manager says the same thing, "can't find release file". Thanks, Bernie.

Indicator Remindor hasn't been released for 16.04, but you could try to use the version from 15.10

Do you intend to release it for 16.04? It would be so great to have it there.

I haven't had the opportunity to release it for 16.04 yet. Indicator Remindor hasn't really been maintained for a while, but if I get some spare time I will see about packaging a release.
