Obsolete dependency report, 2015-May-15

Since the last report, we've had three new obsoletions that haven't been
fully resolved yet: icu[1], poppler, and python3.

Thank you to all those that have stepped up or returned to (re)maintain
packages; this allowed for the removal of several obsolete libraries.
We are now down to just three packages which are subject to removal from
the distro if they are not updated in the next couple weeks.
