The same topic is up in Pardus Worldforum.
But I will write it here to.
I get some respond from the bug report # 17706
I've tried to import some old packages from other Packagers from 2009.2 to
2011. After some time, I tought that enough packages was imported to 2011. As
you said, we see that's not correct. There are lots of packages that should be
imported to 2011. However we lack of Packagers of these packages. Moving
packages is easily, however maintining them is the real problem.
For example Licq. After moving it to 2011, who will maintain it ? What if a new
version appears and I didn't see this new version release coming ? I currently
have ~300 packages (like other Pardus developers), and believe me It's really
hard to look for all of them. We just have to find a way how to maintain these
packages after moving to 2011.
But I think we all can fix this. With the community itself.
>From now on, I'll think to spend 1-2 hours of my spare time to these packages
(may be other developers could join me too). But I can't do that alone.
Alatalo, Henrik, and others shoud have a *top-list* of packages that are in
2009.2 but not in 2011. The list should be created with the community and a
list should be created (may be going trough Bugzilla and find all package
request for 2009.2 packages). And everyday we should review and go trough this
list. They should me ping, mail, vs.. that I should not forget it .
I think we could use a new repo for this. A communtiy based repo (not
official). This communtiy based repo could solve all our problems in the first
step. These packages could reside there until a maintainer(Developer) decide to
move these to 2011. (I'll think to take over some of these, but currently I'm
really overload with packages). Anyone who want use a package (like Licq),
could easily download from these community repo.
What do you think ?"
So we should create a sort of "top list" of the programs that we want in Pardus 2011.
Or write here what we miss from Pardus 2009.2
I personally would like to have this programs included:
1.Licq (was in Pardus 2009.2)
2.Gyance Improved (new package request)
I included this link in the bug report so they can look when more comments and request for applications will be filled up.
