Comment: requested by barry; Python 2 application depending on bits from Python 3 update-manager, thus broken, and not worth fixing; should be subsumed by update-manager or software-center; LP: #1050071

  [FFe] Remove Computer Janitor from the archive

Status in “computer-janitor” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The binary packages computer-janitor and computer-janitor-gtk should
  be removed from Quantal.  Nothing reverse-depends on build-deps on
  them, and the source package is broken beyond reasonable repair.  It
  is a Python 2 application that incestuously depends on bits from
  Update Manager, which is a Python 3 application (and library).  As bug
  #1035869 shows, CJ is completely broken, but worse than that, it is
  not worth fixing.  Most of us have long considered CJ potentially
  dangerous and a bad idea.  If anything, cleaning up your system should
  be subsumed by UM or Software Center.
