All,

we have several open bugs on app-accessibility/festival and
app-accessibility/speech-tools.  These packages have been around for a
long time, and upstream appears, at least so far, to be dead (my
maintainer says that he has been unable to contact them).  These
packages are very difficult to maintain, because of their highly custom
build system.

In accessibility, as far as I am aware, espeak has become the most used
software speech synthesizer.  So, if there are not any objections, I am
considering removing festival from the main gentoo portage tree.

So, what I'm trying to figure out is how popular festival is and what it
is being used for.  If you use festival, can you reply to this thread
and give me an idea of how important this package is to you and how
often you use it, etc?
