When I run "xindy -V", I get: xindy release: 2.4 xindy script version: 1.16 /usr/lib/clisp-2.48/base/lisp.run: initialization file `/usr/lib/xindy/xindy.mem' was not created by this version of CLISP runtime Bug fixed in django bug tracker : http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=580762 Needs to upgrade the xindy ebuild from 2.4 to 2.4-1 to resolve the bug.

Where can we find the most recent upstream source code? I could only see xindy-2.3 on SF. Upstream seems dead since 2009.

The latest development is now on the TeXlive SVN. The author jschrod backports it from time to time to his github repo. https://github.com/jschrod/xindy.ctan

It's tagged on github

There is exactly 1 release (2.5.0) from 2014 on https://github.com/jschrod/xindy.ctan/releases There is also a 2.5.1 release. I do not understand where development takes place. http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/8.3/pst/xindy.html https://repology.org/projects/?search=xindy CTAN lists 2.5.1 too and is newer than the upstream homepage it links. https://ctan.org/pkg/xindy?lang=en Should we treeclean it, because it is included in texlive? https://ctan.org/pkg/texlive
Comment 5 Mikle Kolyada 2020-04-20 08:11:11 UTC
Out of confusion, I have merged xindy into texlive-2020 as it is being provided by the collection-binextra in anyway and is placed on the texlive net on CTAN. The separate package will be removed alongside with the texlive-2019.
