1 Hi all,
3 I'm currently heavily involved with jabber-related packages. As a result
4 I have to struggle with the really seldomn maintained packages in
5 Gentoo. As an example: ejabberd 1.0 is not in portage until now, it was
6 released in early december last year. There is not really a reason for
7 this, because it runs (with a few modifications) stable and could be
8 used in production.
9 Another issue are transports. As you know there are only two flavours of
10 Jabber-transports: rotten or broken. But as a result of introducing the
11 py*-t-transports things become better, but: Gentoo did not have them.
12 There is an really outdated version of pymsn around there (as a
13 low-quality ebuild, btw.) and some ebuilds in the wild[1], but they are
14 still lower quality (installing dot-svn-files, complete strange
15 installation target and so on).
17 To come to an end: jabber is not really the most unimportant thing, so
18 things should go better. I want to provide my ebuilds[2] for Gentoo's
19 main tree and I would also offer my help on jabber-stuff (if it's need
20 and it's not just a matter of motivation or so). Anyway, it must become
21 better.
