    2017-02-08 - - Drop esound-daemon subpackage (and related binaries): + openSUSE builds on pulseaudio. For applications that really still want to connect to ESD, there is pulseaudio-esound-compat in place (as a drop-in replacement, it also provides esound-daemon) + Drop esound.init and sysconfig.esound: sources were only used to configure the daemon.
