Bug Description

Since we have no one stepping up at the moment to maintain this for 5 years, I think it makes the most sense to remove it from precise. We can always backport from later releases if someone volunteers to help with this.

For volunteers, please join #ubuntu-mozillateam on irc.ubuntu.com to discuss.

SeaMonkey package is available in Ubuntuzilla depot (tested successfully on Ubuntu 13.04):

To install, type the following commands:
-----------------

echo -e "\ndeb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list > /dev/null

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com C1289A29

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install seamonkey-mozilla-build

----------------

More info: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ubuntuzilla/

Alternatively, you may use Joe Lesko's PPA ( https://launchpad.net/~joe-nationnet/+archive/seamonkey-dev )but it doesn't support Raring Ringtail yet.

I really hope that someone will step up to maintain this high profile software. I wish I had the time to do it... :-/
