Intent to remove gksu from Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

I have been working for months to remove gksu from Ubuntu. (It has
already been removed from Debian). The Mythbuntu blocker was fixed
this weekend and I just noticed an Ubuntu Kylin blocker that is being
worked on.

I just wanted to let developers know that I will be trying to remove
gksu from the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS repositories before release. And since
this is a late change that will affect some workflows, I'm emailing
this list.
