[Mageia-dev] Proposal to drop the package wicd

As discussed in https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5608
while testing a security update for the wicd package, I found
that the updated version, the Core release version, and the
Cauldron version are all unable to run, due to incompatibilities
with python 2.7.

As the package conflicts with the drake network tools, dhcpd,
and networkmanager, (but installing the package doesn't auto
disable them), I don't think we need yet another way to for
people to try and configure their network connections.

I think the package should be made obsolete in both Cauldron,
and Mageia 1.


Thanks, Dave Hodgins
