# Stagnant upstream with latest release from 2016, python2-only, no
maintainer
# in Gentoo, no notable ebuild action in years, multiple bugs open. Blocks
# pygtk removal.
# Switch to alternatives such as,
# net-misc/connman, net-misc/dhcpcd, net-misc/netifrc,
net-misc/NetworkManager
# and so on. Removal in ~90 days. #

90-day removal window due it possibly being used in low-maintenance servers.

Updated openrc ebuilds to not suggest installing wicd anymore but
connman instead,
