Does anybody care about gettext?

Well, it was retired because it did not built since F30 mass rebuild…

* petersen (Jens Petersen)
* ueno (Daiki Ueno)
* praiskup (Pavel Raiskup)
* suanand (Sundeep Anand)
* nphilipp (Nils Philippsen)
* jjanco (Jakub Janco)

6 maintainers could not fix FTBFS for half a year? Anybody is
interested to maintain gettext?

All the patches we carried were merged back in the latest upstream

about the variable types and I did not know how to proceed.

Best of luck

P.S.: Can anyone explain how the builds of other packages went back to
normal, even though there was no successful gettext build?

BTW I've just orphaned it, so hopefully somebody will take it and actually make it build.
