Subject: [gentoo-dev] Can app-office/sc be replaced by app-office/sc-im from GURU?
Date: Mon, 27 Jun 2022 03:24:38
1 It seems app-office/sc (spreadsheet calculator) was last updated
2 upstream about 20 years ago. At this point it's safe to say the
3 project is no longer in development.
5 There is a currently maintained fork called sc-im (spreadsheet
6 calculator - improved) which has been in continuous development for
7 about 6 years at this point. It does not exist in the main Gentoo
8 repository but app-office/sc-im is present in GURU. The
9 app-office/sc-im ebuild appears to be maintained by someone named Dex
10 Conner.
12 I'm new at this, but it looks to me like the ebuild is in good shape.
13 The only thing that jumps out at me is the fact that the package
14 manifest needs some TLC.
16 My thought is unless some serious deficiency is present in
17 app-office/sc-im it should be moved to Gentoo's main ebuild repository
18 and the last rites process should be started for app-office/sc. Does
19 anyone else have thoughts or comments on this?
