KDE widget plasma-applet-socketsentry

Description of problem:
Add the KDE widget plasma-applet-socketsentry package to the official repository of Mageia 6.

This package is in Mageia 5 KDE, but is not in Mageia 6, KDE Plasma.

This widget is very useful to show the connections of your machine to the network in real time

Last we checked, this was still just a Plasma 4 widget, so it's no longer buildable and usable on Mageia 6 and Plasma 5.  That's why the package was removed.

Resolution: (none) => WONTFIX

David Walser, 
Thank you
I reported the request to update at the BugsKde

Rog131 (from bugs.kde.org) told me that this plasmoid is not part of KDE and asked me to contact googlecode.

I accessed the project forum "socketsentry" <https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/socket-sentry> and I sent a message to Rob Hasselbaum, which seems to be the package developer. I asked him if there are plans to update the software socketsentry for Plasma 5. The last movement of that forum is the year 2011, I hope Rob is still working on this project.

After several months Rob Hasselbaum has not yet answered me.
The project seems to be stopped.

I sent an email to Rob Hasselbaum, software developer socketsentry, and he replied that he does not have time to port the socketsentry to KDE Plama 5, but that the software is on GitHub and is available for contributions from anyone who wants help.
