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/ initialization file `/usr/lib/xindy/xindy.mem' was not created by this version of CLISP runtime

Bug fixed in django bug tracker :

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.
Comment 2 Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2017-11-26 18:59:20 UTC
The latest development is now on the TeXlive SVN. 
The author jschrod backports it from time to time to his github repo.
Comment 3 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2017-12-25 23:26:32 UTC
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

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?
Comment 5 Mikle Kolyada (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 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.
