From upstream:

> # Snorenotify is unmaintained, it is recommended to use KNotifications instead.

Unfortunately, the maintainers of qTox have not had the time to work on things for a while now, and there is no knowing if or when things might improve.

The official repository has been read-only archived, and while it should continue to be usable as long as it works well with its dependencies, but if it's blocking things like this, I guess last rites will be unevitable.

As long as a dependency is optional, though, I guess that option could be dropped before the whole thing is dropped.
