Description Michael Mair-Keimberger (iamnr3) 2023-07-04 10:36:04 UTC
Hi,

I think we can remove this package.
HOMEPAGE and SRC_URI are broken and i couldn't find any other upstream.
Besides that, powiedz needs /dev/dsp to run, which is from oss, which itself is long deprecated in favor of alsa. 
It seems like the programm is also only written in polish (powiedz -h), so it's pretty hard to use for non polish speaking persions.
