Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said :

The package was removed with the reasoning "old gnome-panel 2 applet, unmaintained".
The package depends on some other packages, that are not available in higher Ubuntu releases any more (e.g. gnome 2 -> gnome 3). It seems that noone has done the required modifications to the package such that the dependecies could be fulfilled for the newer ubuntu releases.

Can you help with this problem?
