I'm a bit surprised to see so much traffic about the jive removal.

I personally don't care about offensive software, users are free to
not use it (sudo may have funny insults, disabled by default though).
Perhaps marking it broken because it's offensive was inappropriate.
However bapt pointed out some valuable reasons, the software is not
maintained and has no more distfiles available and this was a good
reason for being removed.

And the daemon logo is a ball for several years now, not really a
daemon anymore. :)
