Description Adrien Lemaire 2011-09-26 09:39:08 UTC
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.

It's tagged on github
Comment 4 Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2019-06-22 13:16:55 UTC
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.

CTAN lists 2.5.1 too and is newer than the upstream homepage it links.

Should we treeclean it, because it is included in texlive?
