Bug Description

As we can read in this blog post http://martys.typepad.com/blog/2016/06/new-maintainers-wanted-kde-telepathy-kaccounts-plasma-notifications-and-others.html (it was also posted on ML), KDE Telepathy is not developed for a long time and now also need to maintainer to just keep it incurrent state. It has also some bugs that makes some services it offers to be broken.

I think Kubuntu should drop KDE Telepathy from metapackage. If any user needs it, he should install it manually. We shouldn't use by defautl software that is not developed and might be left unmaintained some day.

Yes and it does not look like there will be a new maintainer anytime soon. It needs to be removed from the seed.
