Muon was orphaned, Ovidiu-florin and I have said that we will take on
it's maintainence.
I have worked with Clive to get it packaged, and we have it building. It
crashes on checking for updates, and we're looking into that
There is another Carlos I believe who has done some work on Muon, and
has proposed rebuilding the UI in QML, but we'll have to see how that goes.

I hope to get it packaged and testing in the coming 2 weeks. I don't see
it making the release ISO in 16.04, but we'll try to get it updated in
the repo's and perhaps we can rebundle it in 16.10

Hope that helps
