JoshStrobl moved this task from Backlog to Accepted For Inclusion on the Package Requests board.

Not sure of maniphest jargon, but I see that this was accepted for inclusion. Does this means that zerotier package is work in progress?

I fear the official instrllation script, oriented to the main distro (deb, rpm, bsd, etc.) because it could break solus.

I prayed Freya but it seems she's around with her cats.

@Brandywine this means it's okay to package and will be included into the repo

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 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 news ? I want to know if it was rejected or they are any chance to make it available

All the information you're after is already in this task. The request to include it has been accepted but no one has stepped up to do the work to package it for Solus and become the maintainer. So the task is closed until someone does so. To be clear you don't have to be a Solus team member to do this. If there was any other news, it would be noted here.

Thanks, I want to know if I can help with packaging or do I need to wait as a normal user

If you would like to learn how to package for Solus you can read Anyone can help with packaging for Solus, I do not know if they place any additional requirements on someone wishing to be a maintainer. I can't answer that question.

Thanks I will take a look

ZeroTier is a great solution, using it daily.

I have build it from source on my solus machines using the procedure below.
I'll try to package it in the coming weeks, would love to learn packaging for Solus.

`sudo su
eopkg install systemd-devel llvm-clang -y

mkdir /opt
cd /opt

git clone
cd ZeroTierOne

make selftest
make install

wget -O /etc/systemd/system/zerotier.service

systemctl enable zerotier
systemctl start zerotier

I have been able to build an eopkg package, but I have to figure out how to include & enable the systemd service
