Ebuild for contact-lokup-applet-0.10

I just built an ebuild for the current 0.10 version of contact-lookup-applet.
Unfortunately I didn't check for existing ebuild in bugzilla before starting,
but at least it's a newer version than the existing one.
Comment 5 Jean-François Richard 2005-12-27 13:27:08 UTC
Last upstream update was on 24-Jul-2005, and it seems the deskbar applet provides the same functionality and then more; []

I'm all for closing this bug...

In fact, deskbar-applet is not working for me (gnome-2.12) but contact-lookup-applet (0.13) is. Just to mention it. I may provide an updated ebuild for 0.13.
Comment 7 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2006-02-08 16:37:36 UTC
Ok, I just build the latest version of deskbar ( and it actually works (was the alt f3 binding bug).

Back to contact-lookup-applet, the latest tar is a little bit outdated because there are some i18n updates in CVS. But appart from that, a simple bump from the attached 0.10 ebuild to 0.13 works perfectly fine.

Some clues about the differences between c-l-a and d-a I found interesting. d-a just allow you to write  emails to somebody. Sure it is scriptable, so you can tune whatever you want but c-l-a presents you all stuff about the selected contact that is in eds, in a single shot (plus it is pure C).
Comment 8 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2006-06-05 00:31:00 UTC
version 0.14 is out, will post an ebuild when I got back home.

Back to args for/against inclusion of this ebuild, I think (need to check but pretty sure) that cla is ligther on memory than deskbar. Considering the hardware I'm using in a day to day config, I prefer using cla than deskbar :).

Ebuild for contact-lookup-applet-0.14.ebuild

Ok here is the ebuild for the last version of contact-lookup-applet. 
I added doc to IUSE because of a QA notice, not sure if it is relevant.

Compiled and actually running without any problems.

I've talked to ross on #evolution and it seems nobody really got to takeover maintenance of contact-lookup-applet. As such I wouldn't like to add it to the tree since it could very well rot rapidly.
Comment 12 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2007-11-16 15:34:23 UTC
Bastien maintains it now ;p
Comment 13 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2008-11-30 11:15:23 UTC
align ebuild requests to same values

(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

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,

Comment 15 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2011-12-18 12:30:06 UTC
Package is dead upstream and applets for gnome panel are deprecated with gnome3. I guess it's time to close this bug.
