Description Manuel Friedli 2008-01-14 01:38:20 UTC
Currently, the only chat-component for jabber included in the portage tree is net-im/mu-conference (afaik), which doesn't seem to be under very active development. There is another implementation of a multi-user chat, called Palaver. It's implemented in python, similar to the Py{AIM,ICQ,MSN}-transports. I suggest that this package be included in portage.
I wrote an ebuild and installed it on my box just a few minutes ago. It seems to be working (as far as I can tell, after some very brief testing). I'll attach it here, plus you can check it out from my overlay via SVN at
This is my first "big" ebuild, so I'm happy if you tell me what to improve.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge palaver

Actual Results:  
"emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "palaver"."

Expected Results:  
palaver should be smoothly installed :)

I'm running jabberd2-2.1.19 on x86. My Ebuild doesn't check for jabberd/jabberd2/ejabberd/whatever, so there's probably some work needed. But as I'm not very experienced with writing ebuilds, I just did it as best I could.

Init script for palaver-0.5

Palaver is started via twistd. I have no clue if I did this correctly with this init-script, at least it starts up correctly :)

(this is an automated message based on filtering criteria that matched this bug)
'EBUILD' is in the KEYWORDS which should mean that there is a ebuild attached 
to this bug.
This bug is assigned to maintainer-wanted which means that it is not in the 
main tree.
Heuristics show that no Gentoo developer has commented on your ebuild.

Hello, The Gentoo Team would like to firstly thank you for your ebuild 
submission. We also apologize for not being able to accommodate you in a timely
manner. There are simply too many new packages.

Allow me to use this opportunity to introduce you to Gentoo Sunrise. The 
sunrise overlay[1] is a overlay for Gentoo which we allow trusted users to 
commit to and all users can have ebuilds reviewed by Gentoo devs for entry 
into the overlay. So, the sunrise team is suggesting that you look into this 
and submit your ebuild to the overlay where even *you* can commit to. =)

Because this is a mass message, we are also asking you to be patient with us. 
We anticipate a large number of requests in a short time. 

On behalf of the Gentoo Sunrise Team,

I don't believe the palaver project even exists at all by now, so let's just close this bug.
