Description Mehmet Giritli 2005-09-28 01:29:56 UTC
There is a need for a messagging application in the portage which also supports
webcam conversations, for example over MSN, one of the most popular im protocols
out there. The CVS version of AMSN does this quite nicely. Therefore, an ebuild
is highly preferable for this version of AMSN, giving the Gentoo users an option
to use webcam over MSN until the next release of AMSN.

Note that dumping the 0.94 ebuild does not work.

what about waiting for the amsn devs to decide that its stablt enough to make a
release ?
