Needs Maintainer is software that has been accepted for inclusion and/or there has been expressed interest in, where we have determined that a dedicated maintainer / integrator is needed to provide the best experience for Solus users.

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?

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.
I had looked for more but I did not find this topic.
I even opened a topic (https://dev.getsol.us/T8839)
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?
I am a user of this and I would have contributed a package if it wasn't an Electron app. I recommend everyone to install it through flatpak instead: https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.bitwarden.desktop

I bet there quite a few users would be interested in using their Solus rigs to fight the pandemic if there were included! :)

I'll try to build a PostGIS package, since I need it myself. Will update.
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.

@serebit Please go ahead :)!
I'd be happy to maintain it, unless @maveonair would rather do it.
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
I'll allow it if you are maintaining it @algent
Thank you @Girtablulu !
@olivir https://flathub.org/apps/details/ch.openboard.OpenBoard should be this
With the covid-19 crisis, my children's teacher wanted us to install it (remote classroom), but if I understand correctly, it's not available on Solus. :/
There was a release in January ! =)

This task can be closed. Resolved by 5d3eb7c6fecb
@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 I would be willing to package and maintain this. Could you catch me up on the progress so far in packaging this?

@jwinnie I had a differential ready that night! It's in the repo ;)
I'll have a differential ready by tonight.
It's been a few weeks?
@JoshStrobl What if we just replaced inetutils with iputils?
Fri, Mar 13
I would be happy maintain the package for strongSwan and networkmanager-strongswan.
This is what it needs.
builddeps : - python-distutils-extra rundeps : - poppler - python-pikepdf - python3-cairo - python3-gobject
and for python-pikepdf

@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.
Any potential update on this?

I am depending on networkmanager-strongswan too so I created the following packages:
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.
