Subject: [gentoo-dev] removal of cgi-based gwebcache servers
Date: Wed, 26 Apr 2006 04:56:59
1 If anyone has ever tried to run a gnutella gwebcache, they've probably
2 noticed about 8-10 requests a second. And it increases during high-usage
3 hours. This makes it useless to run cgi-based scripts unless you have a
4 super-powerful database and web server. Since the usefulness of such
5 scripts has gone to practically 0, they are no longer maintained
6 upstream and I recommend the removal of them from portage. The following
7 packages headed for the guillotine are:
9 net-p2p/phpgnucacheii
10 net-p2p/gwebcache
11 net-p2p/perlgcache
13 The recommended package for anyone wanting to support the gnutella
14 network is net-p2p/ghostwhitecrab, which is its own built-in server.
15 Ghostwhitecrab will continue to be maintained both upstream and in portage.
17 If someone would like to save these packages from a gruesome death,
18 speak now. If not, I'll post another message to gentoo-dev right before
19 the massacre, and everyone's welcome to join #gentoo-commits to watch
20 the gore.
