I saw him commit the svn two month ago and change the public information one
month ago. I think the project is still active.
Also, the following guideline is based on swami-2. I'm not know whether the
trunk version can work well or not.
Actually, considering it also has an active upstream, it's not suitable to
retire swami from fedora. But It's right to retire some other packages with
dead upstream(no svn commit) for more than 5 years, it'll accelerate us to
finally retire gtk+. As I mentoned below, some packges need update to the
lastest release badly to get rid of gtk+ 1.2. And some packages can safely
retire from fedora, e.g. xmms.
