Description Erik van Pienbroek 2009-06-29 15:33:20 EDT

I'm the main developer of NNTPGrab, an usenet download program (http://www.nntpgrab.nl) and I also maintain this program in Fedora. As of recently, the program got support for automatic PAR2 verify and repair. This is done by invoking par2cmdline.

Now I want to make this program also available to RHEL5/CentOS5 users by publishing the package in the EPEL repository. I would like to ask you if you're interested in publishing and maintaining the par2cmdline package in EPEL-5. If you're not interested, please let me know. In that case I would like to become (co-)maintainer of it for the EPEL-5 branch.

I was also wondering if you had any plans to update to the forked version of par2cmdline, called par2-tbb. It's a customized version of par2cmdline which uses Intel Threading Building Blocks (which is already in Fedora) to make use of multiple CPU cores while verifying/repairing files. More information about this fork can be found at http://www.chuchusoft.com/par2_tbb/

I lost interest in par2cmdline. Would you like to co-maintain, or even to be the first maintainer of that package?
Comment 2 Erik van Pienbroek 2009-06-30 04:23:03 EDT
No problem, primary maintainer is fine to me. My FAS username is epienbro
Comment 3 Laurent Rineau 2009-06-30 04:46:31 EDT
I have orphaned par2cmdline. You can take ownership of it here:

I have announced that on the mailing list.
