== Packages that are considered deprecated from Fedora Package Collection ==
 
 
 
{{admon/important|Historical Document|This document is not intended to be a complete list of packages which have been removed from the distribution. It is not maintained.}}
 
 
 
* A procedure on how to deprecate a package in CVS is described in [[How to remove a package at end of life]]
 
 
 
* These are packages, which have been removed from the Fedora repository at some point of time. Sometimes because upstream projects have stopped, sometimes because the packages are considered obsolete in favour of other software that already exists in the repository. Think twice before re-adding them. The previous package maintainers may have had good reason to deprecate these packages.
 
 
 
* Eventually, these data may move into a package database.
