Description: VidCutter is a simple video app to easily trim, split and join video clips.
Note: I happen to like applications which are focused on providing the best user experience for a limited core functionality (instead of feature-packed applications with convoluted user interfaces). Among video editing applications, VidCutter is unmatched in its simplicity and ease of use.
@DataDrake Currently only openSUSE has Vidcutter but as it is a very new application it is understandable that it may take a while to be included in let's say the Debian repositories. You can actually use the AppImage but this application is so simple and easy to use that I think it is a perfect fit for inclusion. It would be great to take another look at this one.
I already explained, why fedora can't include vidcutter in their free repository - "as ffmpeg is required" which is encumbered with patents, and redhat only allows patentfree software in their official repository.
Fedora as you would already know, just a few months ago could not provide mp3 playback decoder in their official repo... again because of patents.
RPM Fusion is a software repository, providing add-on packages for the Fedora distribution of the Linux computer operating system. It was born as a merge of the older repositories Livna, Dribble and Freshrpms. They distributed software that Fedora will not, either because it does not meet Fedora's definition of free software, or because distribution of that software may violate US law.
distribution of that software may violate US law
How may it violate US law and even if it did, why would this be of any concern? Technically, I am not allowed to use several applications which are in the Solus repositories simply because I am based in China and their use is not allowed.
Here's vidcutter 0.5.5 eopkg and package.yml file https://drive.google.com/open?id=17qiLtK3y6dV5jkcXcqCxMdIMLbILZziR , please tidy up package.yml as per Solus packaging requirement. Thank you
please tidy up package.yml as per Solus packaging requirement
Sharing a package.yml and eopkg via Drive isn't acceptable. When/if this is accepted, follow the correct procedure for patch submission.
and Josh is saying to submit package.yml you need to submit it the proper way, hosting it else where isn't the proper way.
Please take the time to read https://solus-project.com/articles/packaging/submitting-a-package/en and submit it that way.
This has sat in accepted for inclusion for about 6 months now. 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.
