fix version number.

that was embarrassing... fixed.
fix PREFIX so files get installed in /usr instead of /usr/local

open-modelica is not one package, it'd be a group of 6-7 packages. I have a recent project that involves modelica, but only touches a small portion of the software. I'm afraid that even if I prepared the packages for solus, I won't be able to adequately verify that the build was correct.

electronic-wechat was removed from repo because it's not maintained. I tried several of its forks, and found the following two promising :

I have a patch to submit, but wondering if it should include the server binary.
If the server executable is included, i feel obliged to add the default config file and systemd service unit file. However I don't think I feel comfortable to enable nbd service.
Apr 28 2019
I'd say it's quite reasonable to include nbd client in solus.

@jeos fcitx works well for me (Chinese input). It had been proposed for inclusion in #T1298 but rejected.

fix builddep: bdb5
I see that libpinyin depends on Berkeley db 5, which is in the base image. According to abi_used_libs, it has always been depending on bdb5.
I don't understand why it requires bdb 4 in your build environment. Could it be some package in local repo?

btw, astroid uses scdoc or ronn to build man page. neither is available in solus yet, so skipping docs for now.
update to 0.14; withdraw previous proposal tto export XAPIAN_CJK_NGRAM

I avoid taking sides in the fcitx v.s ibus debate, but hope to include fcitx in the repo.
Sep 30 2018
removed old .eopkg files in the directory, such that abireport does not
report dependencies on Qt4, which was used by the older klayout builds.
Even with the ibus-daemon -drx workaround, ibus is almost unusable (at least with ibus-libpinyin). ibus will freeze all keyboard inputs frequently, which requires ibus-daemon is restarted.
In some cases, the ibus-daemon restart will cause budgie-wm to crash.
Sep 22 2018
One point of concern:
If we take the /etc/profile.d appraoch, once astroid is installed on that machine, all applications using the xapian library will see XAPIAN_CJK_NGRAM=1.
I'm afraid this would surprise users who have been using xapian prior to installing astroid.

I find it mysterious. The build log shows the following dependency discovery (Qt5 only) :

After submission, I'm not sure why abireport added the following lines to abi_used_libs. I'm pretty sure Qt4 wasn't even present in the chroot build environment.

move sample config file to /usr/share as requested.

Frankly ibus has been a constant source of trouble for years. I had better luck with fcitx on Ubuntu since 14.04. I wonder what's reason of choosing ibus over fcitx in solus/budgie?

Thanks @born2discover, i think that's ample examples of application, and i think enough people care about RabbitMQ to keep it maintained.
May 2 2018
@born2discover i agree with you that developers need it. Could you please list some software framework that relies on RabbitMQ?

@ThanosApostolou you are right. _LARGEFILE64_SOURCE is for building on 32bit system. Since Solus is 64bit only, that macro is not needed.
tested with a few .vcd files. works for me. i don't have examples to test its tcl scripts.

This is the only open-source digital waveform viewer that is usable.

Happy to report that I tested @ThanosApostolou's diff after updating to the latest stable. Both verilog simulation and VPI plugin building work well.
Mar 18 2018
try again to mention the tasks
Mar 17 2018
As for static libraries, are those plugins compiled as separate packages or at run-time via iverilog itself? If yes, I agree they can stay in. If no, they belong in -devel
Do you think that office.scientific is a more suitable component than programming?
On one hand verilog is a programming language, on the other it is almost exclusively used for electronics hardware design.
I believe iverilog should fall in the same component as kicad and klayout. There is no engineering component in solus, hence office.scientific.
I used to have this problem in December 2017, and switched to pinentry-curses.
I was going to test it further with some verilog simulations and after the glibc upgrade but submitted D2557 accidentally.
My primary concern is whether those .a libs should be split into the -devel package. Since vpp compiles verilog source into an executable, it's possible that those .a files are need for this compile process.
Please review this next week. I only tested under stable, want to test it against unstable after the glibc upgrade. I will amend "test plan" section as well.

Lyx upstream hasn't announced the release of 2.3.0 yet.
They found some issue on Windows ( https://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg204066.html ), and are holding back the release.
I checked the tarball of tarsnap. It bundled the following source packages:
- bsdtar: BSD license
- libarchive: BSD license
- libcperciva: BSD license
- scryptenc: BSD license
- bash completion scripts: permissive custom license

rabbitmq is more-or-less comparable to zeromq, which is already included in solus.

On one hand, I'm afraid this category would become "Scribus + TeX". Honest can't think of any other viable DTP software in Linux.
Docbook used to be a candidate when the XmlMind editor was free for non-commercial use, but it stopped being free several years ago.

@JoshStrobl I'm using the astroid mail client, which uses gmime. If I don't --enable-crypto in gmime, astroid crashes if you try signing/encrypting your email and spits the following error message:
@bennydarshan I was sharing my experiences and use cases in support of including mksh into solus repo.
Some commercial CAD software I use depends on many ksh (ksh93) scripts. In my test, those scripts work on mksh as well.

I concur on making Zotero 3rd-party with @ivanhoe1024 .

Sorry this comment came in late. I understand that lrzip isn't widely used, but if @DataDrake asked for an example, I'm one.
Dec 20 2017
I tested the build. Functionality-wise everything works fine. Thanks a lot.

After the recent introduction of usysconf, ibus input methods work properly with all the software i'm using. So my previous comment (Jul 18 2017) is now obsolete.
However, the autostart script suggested by @seb is still needed.
I hope this script can be absorbed in the desktop environment or the ibus package, so the user doesn't have to add the script manually.

jupyter notebook is essential to me, too. Installing it with pip seems sub-optimal for common python package like this.
Packaging is straightforward, because most dependencies are already in the solus repo.
Nov 29 2017
it builds and runs fine, though.
@DataDrake I wonder why libraries under /usr/lib64 are split to the klayout-devel package? I don't think any one would try to link to them.
