Katoob used to be maintained by leonardop, I put it under Gnome because I fixed a few bugs. Honestly, I'm not that interested in keeping it around. Gedit and all other modern editors are perfectly capable of handling RTL languages and ligatures.

Katoob is just irrelevant now, and upstream has also given up on it.

I say we should last-rite it.

i think i can fix this without much trouble, but if you want to drop it then please do.
Comment 4 Daniel Gryniewicz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-12-15 20:09:33 UTC
I would vote for a post to -dev asking if anyone wants to take it, and last-riting it otherwise.
