Bug Description

Ubuntu Quickly is no longer being maintained and has been replaced by the Ubuntu SDK (and Make). The last commit was in 2012. If you stumble across the documentation [1] you might believe this is the way to make Ubuntu apps easily. It also defaults to technologies we no longer recommend python2 and gtk2*.

I did email the desktop team and got confirmations it's no longer needed [2]. Let's remove both source and binaries from 15.10 if possible.

Source Packages to remove: quickly, quickly-widgets, quickly-unity-lens-template, unity-singlet
Binary package list - python-quickly-common python-quickly-core python-quickly.widgets python-unity-singlet quickly
quickly-ubuntu-template quickly-unity-lens-template quickly-widgets quickly-ubuntu-template

Pandora-build is no longer needed and can be removed, but it might be trickier because an older version is Debian.

* In fact it might be the key blocker for a few old glade gtk2 packages in repo.

Talked to the Pandora-build developer who says it is abandoned (and has been for 5 years). An older version is still in Debian - not sure the best way forward for that.

I removed unity-singlet, quickly-lens-templates, and quickly-widgets, as they don't have any external dependencies (see below). However, I cannot remove quickly yet: pandora-build depends on that, and while it is slated for removal, gearmand has a build dependency on pandora-build.

So it seems to me we first need to drop quickly from pandora-build's dependencies before we can remove it. Supposedly this is just about reverting some of our Ubuntu delta?

Thanks!

I've submitted a patch to gearmand to remove the pandora-build dependency so pandora-build could be removed from Debian - https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=799072
