Tin is a full-featured text-based news reader. Tin is actively
developed - latest stable release on April 9, 2001; latest development
snapshot on March 7, 2001. Tin has been present in Redhat Linux at
least from 5.2 (I can't find a mirror of older releases) to 7.1 beta
but is missing in the final 7.1 release.
What is the rationale for removing it and are there plans to add it
License problems - read the ones on top of the source files.
Tin development branch (1.5 series) no longer has this nasty 'you can't profit
from tin' condition and uses BSD-like license instead, so I think it is possible
to add tin back into the distro.
When it's released, it will be evaluated for inclusion like other apps.
Is there any info on how does the evaluation process look like? What's taken
into account? And how's the list of candidates formed?
A couple weeks ago tin 1.6 was released - it's the new stable branch. So could
you please reevaluate it?
