Description: giFT is a `recursive' acronym for `giFT: Internet File
Transfer'. The giFT project is actually a collection of several
components together: the giFT daemon (which acts as bridge to the
actual file sharing protocols), the network plugin, and a user
interface front-end.
Requires: (provided with binary rpms) libgift, libgiftproto
(Note: Currently seeking sponsor for Znapora)
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2005-12-03 02:43:48 EST
Gift is already hosted at rpm.livna.org (due to potential legalities wrt file
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-12-03 23:08:56 EST
Closing due to Comment #1.
Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2005-12-06 17:40:59 EST
On the other hand, things such as bittorrent, dclib, gtk-gnutella and valknut
are in Extras.  Is this different in some way?  See also
Comment 4 Dmitry Butskoy 2005-12-07 12:59:00 EST
As I remember, "dclib" was in Livna too, but was added to Extras later, as
people became less paranoid. :)

If this package will not contain links to some illegal stuff, it should be moved
to Extras as well.

(for comment#1): AFAIK specifying explicit Livna location is a little bit
illegal thing here... ;) :)
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2005-12-08 09:46:41 EST
This one appears to need a lot of work (has no BR's), lots of needless subpkgs,
and is incompatible with livna package... and the submitter apparently is not
yet sponsored.

I'll take the liberty of closing this, and (re)submitting all of gift,
gift-openft, gift-gnutella, apollon to FE for review within the next day or 2.
