Package: freevo
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear everybody,

'freevo' is in "dormant state" since Feb 2014 [1] ; there are some
patches around to revive it [2] and a github branch that had some
activity [3], but in truth there was no activity in some years.

In the meantime Debian progresses; so now this freevo
package cannot be installed and used in Debian Jessie; there are
many problems, including:
-) its init scripts are not compatible with systemd, and
-) its Python code is not compatible with latest 'twisted'

I gave it a look: fixing 'freevo' is more work than I can dedicate now.
Moreover 'kodi' is now in Debian, so fixing 'freevo' probably
does not make much sense.

So I am opening this 'grave' bug; I am perfectly OK if someone wishes
to fix 'freevo' ; but I would rather not see 'freevo' (as it is now) being
part of the next major Debian release.

Best regards,

a.
