Has there been any development in wicd in the last months that
suggests that packaging new wicd stuff is worth it?

Greetings

[1] is one click away from [2], and it appears stuff happened in
october.

Due to time costraints of upstream authors, development somewhat stalled in
the last months.

However, I've recently been accepted in the upstream team, I hope I can give
some help there (starting from merging the patches shipped in the Debian
package). And I know Adam Blackburn was preparing a bugfix release versioned
1.7.1 (I saw a "beta2" tarball of it, so I suppose it's coming out soonish).

Iker, I see many people already reviewed your package. With my
wicd-maintainer-hat on, I ask you to add a "Provides: wicd-client" to your
binary package.
Also, if it only depends on Qt libs, it would be better IMVHO if you (or
upstream) named it "wicd-qt", to stay consistent with other clients (wicd-gtk
and wicd-curses). Otherwise, wicd-kde would be fine -- but it's just a matter
of consistency, you can call it whatever you like.

Thank you,
David

Due to time costraints of upstream authors, development somewhat stalled in

the last months.

Iker, I see many people already reviewed your package. With my

wicd-maintainer-hat on, I ask you to add a "Provides: wicd-client" to your

binary package.

Excuse me, i am not sure if i underestand well, "Provides: wicd-client" where? in debian-mentors description?

Also, if it only depends on Qt libs, it would be better IMVHO if you (or

yeah, i also thougth about that. I just give that name because it was the original author's given name.* But he is very happie with my intention to package it for debian and i know for sure that he doesn't care how i name it. So wicd-qt would be grate.

But.. are you talking only about the package name or also the binary name?

*I'll send an email to him just to be sure, maybe he also wants to change it in upstream if i finally find a sponsor.

Thank you,

David



No, thank you.* I really want to make this work and your email motivates me so much.

In debian/control, in the binary section.
Please read:

http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-binary.html#s-virtual_pkg
http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-relationships.html#s-virtual

This is because wicd-daemon is Recommending:

Recommends: wicd-gtk (= 1.7.0+ds1-5) | wicd-curses (= 1.7.0+ds1-5) | wicd-cli
(= 1.7.0+ds1-5) | wicd-client

This way, one could use your client without having one of those above installed.

I was talking about both, the binary package and the binary in /usr/bin/. :-)
It's better if you talk to upstream about this. But then again, it's really
just a matter of consistency.

I'de be happy to sponsor it. And maybe it's better if we continue this on
debian-mentors@ :-)
