[Pkg-db-devel] Bug#346209: Time to remove db2 entirely?

Package: db2
Severity: wishlist

There are no packages in etch which depend on any of the db2 packages.

In unstable, there are only htdig, qtstalker, and libdb2-ruby.  qtstalker
is being converted to libdb4 upstream, and libdb2-ruby isn't actually used
by anything else.  htdig appears to be unmaintained.

It seems to me that it is a reasonable time to remove db2 entirely.  (One way
to close 12 old bugs.)
