Any idea if & when this might return?

Re: PySolFC missing from repos

Since there's no systemd involved, this is not a Devuan issue.

The answers for why packages are removed from Debian repos can be found via the Debian package tracker via //tracker.debian.org/PACKAGE_NAME

https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/pysolfc wrote:

Migration status for pysolfc (- to 2.6.4-3): BLOCKED: Rejected/violates migration policy/introduces a regression
Issues preventing migration:
∙ ∙ Updating pysolfc would introduce bugs in testing: #1008708, #1039723

The root issue seems to involve a potential license violation which was since clarified so maybe someone interested needs to prod the relevant Debian maintainer to see if the latest version can be restored.

Re: PySolFC missing from repos

Thank you for this insight - I hope someone will manage to restore it to the repos in due course. smile

My 77 year old sister is already missing it, & I only upgraded her computer the other day! wink

Presently, I have xshisen & xpat2 installed, but she doesn't like them....

Hoping wont make it happen any quicker.

On the other hand, a polite nudge to the relevant Debian maintainer - asking if the changes made were sufficient, or if there is still more to do - may well have a positive impact.
