Do we upgrade drakconf as if it were an ordinary application? Mageia has a version of Drakconf that is far newer and better feature supported than what Rosa has. Rosa uses 12.19 while Mageia has 12.51. With Rosa branding, can Drakconf be upgraded for Feature Parity?
ROSA's direction for the last several years was to get rid of old drakxtools wherever possible. In KDE, users are encouraged to use KDE Control Center, and some necessary drak tools (whose functionality is not implemented in KDE itself - e.g., rpmdrake) are integrated in it. In LXDE, lxde-control-center is considered to be drakconf replacement.
drakconf-legacy package still exists, but it was moved to contrib repository and now it is not much supported, at least not by ROSA maintainers.
