Description Frédéric "LpSolit" Buclin 2020-07-23 16:35:54 CEST
Flash Player will reach EOL in 5 months, see https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/end-of-life.html. I think it should already be removed from cauldron as there won't be any security release from Adobe when Mageia 8 is released.
Comment 1 David Walser 2020-07-23 22:26:59 CEST
Marc attempted to remove it, but I think task-obsolete may not work with the buildsystem anymore for non-core packages.  I think Jani made a task-obsolete-nonfree to work around that.  Also freshplayerplugin and anything else dependent on or associated with Flash should probably be removed.

CC: (none) => jani.valimaa, mageia
Priority: Normal => release_blocker

Thank you Frédéric for raising this.

Assigning to all packagers, Jani already CC'd.
In fact, I did not find flash-player-plugin in Cauldron. Perhaps it has already been removed, in which case this bug can be closed.
