Eric 3.9.2 is available in the repositories, but 3.9.5 is available upstream.
There are some translations available upstream too (french, russian, german).
I've rebuild the package for fedora, the modified specfile and SRPM are on :
Also, some components are no longer available upstream, I'm not sure about what
their removal could do.
I've not removed the preferences patch, since I don't know if it's required for
these version or not.
Hope that will help :)
would you be interested in helping comaintain this in fedora?
Yes why not ?
I'll be happy to comaintain it :-)
