Open Source: yes
Description: "Geierlein is a free (AGPL'ed) Elster client, i.e. an application that allows to send VAT declarations to Germany's fiscal authorities."
I am presented with this error when I try to run the application. It seems that Solus are two versions ahead of the max version of Firefox that Geierlein supports.
Error: Platform version '50.0' is not compatible with minVersion >= 3.5 maxVersion <= 48.*
This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over a year. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
Any German speakers around? I think this project is dead.
The github link now shows a notice which (when passed through machine translation) makes it sound like the project has shutdown because the German government has discontinued the API this program relied on.
Yes, confirmed. The bavarian regional authorities shuts the open interface and will only allow a closed source interface solution named "ERiC". So developer Stefan Siegl declares the project as dead.
