Needs libbtc which is not in the repo.

Needs libbtc which is not in the repo.

Is it something that's difficult to add to the repository together with this?
Does it need a separate entry?

Thanks for claiming this package by the way.

Nah it's completely normal for a package to not have dependencies already in the repo. No reason for another package request :)

Oh ok, it does sound like a hassle when you're packaging though!

No there are no problems. I'm looking at creating libbtc so you just need to wait. :)

Patience is no problem, it's not something that's extremely important or something.

Could take some time this as libbtc is not considered stable yet.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for 6 months now. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a completed patch, communicate issues, 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.

This can't be built for Solus as this lacks stable dependencies.

Denying inclusion based on DOA dependency.
