I orphaned gnome-applet-netspeed a few days ago due to bugs being
reported and dead upstream. I did not have the skills necessary to fix
this myself. The initial plan was to retire the package, but since Erik
van Pienbroek said he'll have a look, I decided to orphan the package
All in all, the person picking this up should probably assume the role
of the upstream maintainer as well. If no one steps up, I think this
package should get retired properly.
