Hi List
I have created a bug requesting adding the google-talkplugin to
openSUSE Non free, please review and add your support :)

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=635607

We cannot just include packages without a license - and for most non-free
packages we would probably need a redistribution license from Google -
and those are not easy to get.

For these kind of packages, it's really better to download them yourself,

In principle I agree with what you've said Andreas... the issue here
is... Goggle is not (yet?) providing a package for openSUSE. There is
only a package for Ubuntu... thus there is nothing available to
"download yourself".

Yes, this is unfortunate - but with the unclear legal situation, we cannot do
it.

Can't we contact Google about this to see if we can ship such a rpm, or
if they can provide one?

Vincent
