galeon removed from Lucid?

Asked by Bela Lubkin on 2010-05-03

<> shows "galeon" as currently supported and present in Karmic and earlier releases. I installed it somewhen between Lucid Alpha-1 and Beta.

Now that my Lucid is synced up to release (x86_32), it shows up in Synaptic under the "local and obsolete" category. `apt-get install --reinstall galeon` reports:

   Reinstallation of galeon is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.

I realize that development of Galeon is stalled / deprecated in favor of Epiphany and others. In part this question should really be read as: "having gone to <> wondering why it disappeared between Lucid alpha & release, which links should I have followed, where should I have gone, to understand the decision process behind that?"

Ok, by googling "galeon lucid" I found LP #553049 which requested (and effected) removal of galeon. I'm not disputing the reasoning or action, just trying to better understand how I should have more easily figured this out via Launchpad itself.
