Subject: O: distmp3 -- A Perl client and daemon for distributed audio encoding
Date: Tue, 24 Aug 2004 18:21:38 -0700
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the distmp3 package.

The package description is:
 The distmp3 package contains a client, distmp3, and a daemon, distmp3host,
 which can be installed on many machines to provide fast distributed encoding
 of music (typically from a CD-ripper or batch script) using an encoder of
 your choice - usually MP3, Ogg Vorbis, or flac.
 .
 abcde is one such CD ripper wrapper which has builtin support for distmp3 and
 can use it very efficiently, especially in the case where the machine with the
 best CD-ROM drive is unable to encode the extracted audio at a satisfactory
 speed.
 .
 The current tradeoff is that the client may not pass command-line arguments to
 the encoder being run on the machines running the distmp3hosts.

Distmp3 is a package in top condition; there are a few wishlist bugs,
one fairly hairy, and one unreproducible one. I no longer have an
interest in maintaining it ever since I got my new workstation which
obsoleted the need for me to use distmp3. I also need to go to school
soon and I need to lighten my package load.

Maintaining this package will require a rudimentary command of Perl.

Jesus has already uploaded a new distmp3 version, so this wnpp bug
is being closed.
