Some time ago at opensuse-packaging-list
) I was
asking for some feedback about a cross-distribution project of mine called
Pakanto but probably got lost in between other messages. Pakanto
) is a (currently) small project dedicated to
improve/write distribution agnostic package descriptions ready for reusage
for all Linux distros.
I already have a few (hopefully) useful package descriptions there (not only
in English!). However writing new ones from scratch instead of improving on
top of existing ones is a quite time consuming job.
As it is way better to improve upon a good basis such as your package
descriptions (my current aim is to provide decent package descriptions for
all "official" KDE packages in English and German until the first beta
Release of KDE 4) I ask you if I can import all your KDE package descriptions
(descriptions of software located at KDE Subversion repository) into Pakanto
under its license conditions:
The Pakanto license conditions aren't much different from yours (I suppose
your package descriptions do have the same license as the package, so they'd
be mostly LGPL/GPL in case of KDE) they just add some extra caution in order
to guarantee as less as possible troubles on reusing and maintaining these
texts under the copyleft principle.
I'd be really happy to provide you with improved and multilingual package
description texts based on yours. Are you interested?
