DataDrake closed T5526: Package Request: TPP as Wontfix.

Given that this was not received an update in 10 years, requires Ruby 1.8, and there haven been major breaking changes in Ruby since then: I'm going to have to reject this. If by some miracle this still works with modern Ruby, it won't for long and it's not our job to maintain the source.

This is not the same thing as Scene Builder. Oracle delegated Scene Builder to the OpenJFX project and stopped offering their releases. This is based on it, but Gluon didn't want people to use the one from OpenJFX, so they maintain this one separately for the Oracle JDK users.

While I agree that this needs to be better exposed through a GUI environment, we will never enable WoL by default. It potentially allows a remote attacker to power up a machine that would have been otherwise unable to be accessed.

  • Mail servers such as Postfix, Dovecot, etc, are NOT eligible for inclusion. Solus does not provide a server operating system.
  • Web servers and database daemons ARE eligible for inclusion, as they facilitate web developers to work locally.

DataDrake added a comment to T5077: lrzip - Long Range ZIP.

@josephpaul0 Trying to be pragmatic here. More packages means more things for us to maintain and less time to spend on other development. So I have to ask questions like this before including something. The fact of that matter is that in 2017, the most common compression formats are still zip archives and compressed tarballs. I'm not saying that no one uses lrzip. But I've also never seen it used in the wild. So I need to know that it isn't something that will get included, used by someone in for only a few months (distro hopping is a thing), and then get stuck maintaining it when no one uses it.
