I believe the time has come to retire ksensors.

The last update/release was 18/08/2004, and it appears upstream has been
defunct since at least that time.

Unless there are objections voiced and/or a maintainer steps forward
before Oct 9 (Friday), I will go ahead and retire this package.
Here's an objection! I still use KSensors all the time, it still works
perfectly fine and it presents the information in a better way than the
plasmoids. (For example, you can have actual numbers for the temperature in
the systray as opposed to some funky curves or analog indicators which are
hard to read on my small panel.) The plasmoids also seem not to display
hddtemp information.

I don't use KDE... so I cannot comment there.

However... have you considered trying  gnome-applet-sensors?

  But I'm willing to pick up KSensors maintainership if
you want to orphan it.

It seems odd to continue such a package despite upstream being defunct.

As I no longer use ksensors, if you wish to maintain this package... I will happily
surrender maintainership to you.
