I'm interested in packaging Robo3T but its last commit is a year old. Is this an issue?

Okay, wouldn't a solution be to use what is ready even if it is no longer supported until we develop a definitive solution?

So, I use other distros, one of them is mint based on ubuntu / debian and fingerprintgui and fprind with libpam works perfectly.

gabriaz added a comment to T4881: fingerprint-gui.

I would argue against actually adding this to the repository. This project has been dead for a couple years and from what I can tell no one has actually stepped up to maintaining the code base or make a new fingerprint manager application.
Arch Linux seems to be having problems building it lately (see comments) because of it no longer being compatible with fprintd that handles the fingerprint support.
In the meantime you could probably try installing fprintd (sudo eopkg it fprintd) and use the console commands for it. I am trying to figure out how I can get the fingerprint support in gnome settings to work.

I had looked for more but I did not find this topic.

I have a ThinkPad x220 and I need this functionality.
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 147e: 2016 Upek Biometric Touchchip / Touchstrip Fingerprint Sensor
How does development work? How is the addition of this functionality done?

You can sent the diff without a repository existing.

@DataDrake I volunteer as a maintainer. I have a successfully built package with the accompanying package.yml and pspec files. I'm not sure how to use arcanist though. Do I make a git repository and upload it via arc diff, or do you guys make a repository on here and I clone it and use arc diff then?

JoshStrobl closed T4483: kile as Locked.

They've had years to put out a KF5-supported stable release at this point, they haven't. Regardless of whether or not you need it, my comment from almost two years ago is still accurate, which says a lot about that project. It would be dead-on-arrival.

Needs a maintainer and I'll allow it as an alternative to Hack for monospace fonts geared towards development. Just don't go asking for the Golang font, @JoshStrobl and I both think it's hideous :p

jwinnie updated subscribers of T8789: asdf version manager.

@DataDrake It appears that this package is meant to be installed exclusively in the home directory, in a folder called ~/.asdf. It would require major patching to make it work system-wide. In light of this, is the package still accepted for inclusion?

@DataDrake Can you clarify which things it doesn't handle well on Solus? As we are intending to run it on our machines for local audit to export to our security team.

@Adrian-Turjak I'm not letting this in the repo until I've had a chance to work with upstream to fix how it interacts with Solus. Right now it doesn't correctly report the status of many things. If you need it for scanning remote systems, it's just Bash and can easily be run from an unpacked archive.

JoshStrobl triaged T8801: iputils as Normal priority.

I'm accepting this only with the clause that tools such as ping from iputils are appropriately patched (not just moved) to ensure it does not conflict with ping from our inetutils, since iputils did not change their binary name.
