Did you have a specific client in mind? Most of these don't have tagged releases and aren't eligible for inclusion.

@atoms No tagged releases or release tarballs for the MythTV addon. Without one of those there's no way to perform repeatable builds. Right now, this just isn't ready for inclusion.

I understand. This was one of the few packages I did not find a replacement for when switching distros. I noticed Kodi 17 Beta 3 is currently available in Solus. While it may be an out of date package for v17, would this be a more appropriate link to submit? Thank you.

I think these are the most common - Mediaportal, Argustv, MythTV, dvbviewer and dvblink

@tompa and none of those have tagged releases, see my dilemma?

Yes I do, updated source addresses.
Let me know if anything more is needed!

Updating the source addresses doesn't solve this. The developers needs to tag their releases.

ah, sorry!
You mean tagged on github?

Yeah. They don't seem to host source tarballs for addons anywhere afaik, so they need to tag it else we can't build against a tag or a release tarball.

Ok, so maybe the only way now is to build our self?
Where could we find instructions?

Hi tompa,

Try this:

Build instructions

Then go to folder:


create a zip from pvr.iptvsimple and install it on koki.

Moving to Awaiting Package Upgrades, as they don't provide any tarballs from what I can tell.

Closing. They've had almost two months to have a tagged release and they haven't.

Ok i realize you do not wat tags changed. Triage sounded ominous. Noted. Apologies. So was merged with a closed request. In this new request I specified 1 of the 5 packages mention here previously with better information. They only release a new version with each major Kodi version. What criteria does it not meet for inclusion with respect to the rule changes since my last request?
