  • Name: qgit
  • Homepage:
  • Why should this be included in the repository?: It's an alternative to git's gitk GUI. I don't need to tell you how old Tk applications appear, plus a Qt git GUI integrates well into Plasma, which I am using. A git GUI is often more productive than the bare command line because of how many items you can glance at.
  • Is it Open Source?: GPL 2.0
  • Who and how many users do you anticipate will use this software?: Numerically? I don't know. But there are certainly people who use gitk and appreciate aesthetics.
  • Link to source tarball/zip file:

v2.9 is old, but there's a v2.9.1 incoming so upstream is far from being dead. Admittedly though, issues aren't addressed that fast.

I've packaged that on GitHub to verify build dependencies and stuff.

Not tried yet, because I have to upgrade my system first or wait for qt5 Release 62 to land on main.

I'd like to see 2.9.1 released before we accept this.

2.10 is out, so I'll let this one in now.

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.
