I filed a deleterequest: https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/141855
The delete request got rejected because festival is needed by
festival-spanish-voices and kdeaccessibility3.
I'm cc'ing the maintainers of those two packages. Please either adopt
festival, or drop those packages.
Ilya, ping: kdeaccessibility3 is blocking here. Can you either drop it,
make it not use festival, or become the new festival maintainer?
I didn't get a reply from you on this. So I filed a deleterequest for
kdeaccessibility3 : https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/144436
I'm happy to revoke that, though, if you tell me which way you want to
move forward for festival.
Festival works well here for voice synthesis (including Russian voices) under KDE3. I was
planning to package
Russian voices for it developed by the Russian Academy of Sciences and packaged by Alt
I know no other voice synthesis software capable of Russian sppech under Linux. Is there a
real need to drop it?
