I can add the dependency but it is still not out of date as you flagged

Salamandar commented on 2016-10-03 18:54

Please add python-setuptools to deps ! :)

I did some further editing of your PKGBUILD also but I forgot the tabulations, it will be properly indented next time I upload but it is not reason enough for a new package release :)

Salamandar commented on 2016-04-21 08:04

I installed it but could not test it today, but the PKGBUILD seems okay to me :D
(apart from the missing tabulations, i did not see the multiple spaces were deleted in my comment)
I'll tell you tonight or tomorrow if there are any problems.

The package should really by named gitso-git but I guess that does not matter much in the end. I just edited the PKGBUILD and got a package out of it - no testing of installation, upgrade or actual use of gitso has been made but as the previous PKGBUILD was unusable I decided to upload this right away. Please test installing and using it.

Salamandar: You're right, the package has been neglected as nothing has happened upstream, the PKGBUILD is not following packaging standards. I will put your edits in the PKGBUILD and commit shortly after testing. If you feel keen on maintaining the package, do not be afraid to ask :)

The package does not work : old code base, bad packaging (not your fault though).

I created this PKGBUILD considering the last comment from Spheerys.

Gitso is not run correctly for me : when I run it as server, during the client connexion the server crash.
The terminal messages are the following :

It's looks like the wx python library call need to be updated on the gitso source code.
I tryied to make issue on the official project website but this one is on "ReadOnly" state by Google :
The project was forked on Github by (at least) 2 people and the most advanced fork seams to be

What do you thing to update the pkgBuild with this repository (or another more mature if this one is not functionnal) ?

Salamandar commented on 2015-09-12 17:26

The "tightvnc" dependency should be changed to "tigervnc" !!!

khampf commented on 2014-11-22 22:47

Someone flagged this package out-of-date but I checked and 0.6 is still the current platform-independent source package available upstream.
