Description

Homepage: http://bochs.sourceforge.net/

For the reason to include this in the repository my thoughts would be because ; Its lightweight , its pretty straightforward(as what i've heard) , it can always come in handy for many others who will have a need to use it and of course its an free software.

Is it open source: Yes I believe it is reading under License : "This program is distributed under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation."

bximage is a part of bochs. I don't see the point in shipping one without the other.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over 30 days. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a completed 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.
