Earlier this year there was some discussion[1] regarding the utility of
the package mlocate because of the effect its daily cronjob has on all
systems[2] and a call for use cases. While there were some interesting
ones we have decided to remove mlocate from the standard installation of
Ubuntu, however this package is still in main and will continue to be
supported at the same level that it was.
