Description Jeff MacDonald 2003-10-08 10:18:02 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030925

Description of problem:
the "eros bbs engine" is an open-source project I've been working on officially
for about 2 years, but it's origins are far older than that-- I was a sysop
using a commdore 64 and Image BBS many moons ago, and I wanted to make something
for "modern" technology that would bring back that architecture and way of doing

at this point, I've announced the engine and several example applications on
freshmeat.net, and it has been deployed for several domains, primarily as a
"personal bbs", but I have one friend who is using it in an "intranet" setting.

the engine (called 'eros', but I can prolly rename that) and the example
applications are available either from my BBS:
<http://zoidtechnologies.com/projects/php/> or from sourceforge.net under the
projectname "eros": <http://sourceforge.net/projects/eros/>.

the only thing I can see as a barrier to accepting it as part of fedora is that
I don't (yet) have RPMs or the skill to make a good specfile.. so I'll need a
little help with that. I've been distributing it as a tarball, and I made some
small inroads regarding getting it to use autoconf, but that work is not yet

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
snapshot release

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install
2. configure
3. fun! :)

This looks like something more suited to Fedora Extras; at this point you might
want to look at http://fedora.us/ for their submission guidelines.
