Retiring OmegaT and considerations about its dependencies

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi all:

I delayed this for time enough. It's impossible to me to keep updated OmegaT in Fedora. Their development rhythm is pretty nice but they are adding frequent new dependencies and I can't make the effort to add them to Fedora. The good part is I'm working in the Flatpak approach which is less strict with dependencies and is multidistro too so Fedora users will get an alternative in the coming weeks.. Retiring OmegaT bring to discuss what to do with the dependencies which I honestly prefer to abandon.

This is the situation:

Packages to retire:
  • OmegaT, for the explained reasons (last version in Fedora: 2.6.3, last version upstream: 3.6.0/4.1.3)
  • svnkit, only used by OmegaT and broken in the current Fedora version
  • sqljet, only required by OmegaT and svnkit, broken in Fedora too
  • sequence-library, only required by svnkit and broken too
OmegaT exclusive dependencies to be orphaned/retired:
  • gnudfif
  • htmlparser
  • vldocking
OmegaT dependencies I want to delegate bc used by other package:
  • jsap, used by java-wakeonlan
  • Since I supposed there would be no interest on them I'll retire OmegaT, svnkit, sqljet and sequence-library
  • I'm gladly transfer maintenance of gnudiff, htmlparser and vldocking to anyone interest, so I'm going to orphan them
  • This message is cc:'d to Leamas, the maintainer of java-wakeonlan to offer him the ownership, if he declines I'll orphan it too.

I'm open to your feedback, if any.
