The Medibuntu Project Comes To An End
It is clear that when something becomes useless it goes straight to the trash. Do you guys remember the Medibuntu project? I have some bad news for Medibuntu fanboys. If you remember this project it is time so say goodbye to it, because the project is now considered abandoned and the Medibuntu repository has been unmaintained for several months. For those of you who don’t have any idea what Medibuntu is, don’t worry, we are here to explain everything to you.
Medibuntu stands for Multimedia, Entertainment & Distractions In Ubuntu. It is a repository of packages that cannot be included into the Ubuntu distribution for legal reasons (copyright, license, patent, etc).
Some Of The Reasons Are:
- patentability of software, algorithms, formats and other abstract creation
- legal restrictions on freedom of speech or communication
- restrictions on the use of certain types of technical solution, such as cryptography
- legal restrictions on imports of software technology, requiring for example specific permissions
Gauvain Pocentek, made a announcement on 2013-09-11 for Medibuntu and he recommends Medibuntu users to disable the repository if they are using it.
“The Medibuntu repository has been unmaintained for several months, and has become more and more useless over the years. The project is now considered abandoned, and we recommend to disable the repository if you are using it.”, Gauvain writes.
