* Package name : conspire
Version : 0.11.0

Description : Conspire is an advanced, lightweight IRC client for
UNIX. It includes a GTK interface, and a "bot" interface which has no
UI. Interface segregation is accomplished through libconspire, which
contains the common code. Conspire started as a fork of XChat 2.9 CVS.

Besides allowing for many different UIs to be implemented on top of
the conspire engine, Conspire includes other notable features such as
being extended only through DBus. Since Conspire is extended only
through DBus, it is less susceptible to various attacks from hostile
users.

Conspire features limited compatibility with XChat plugins via the
conspire-xchatwrap program. Additionally, conspire can use XChat
scripts via the conspire-python program. Both of these programs run in
a seperate memory address space than conspire, and as such hostile
plugins and scripts cannot gain access to any data which is not
presented through the proper XChat APIs. The fact that the extensions
run in a seperate address space also means that poorly written
extensions will not crash the IRC client.

Additionally, third-party programs can extend Conspire if they detect
that it is running. This can allow for example: media players which
provide their own IRC integration options, tighter integration with
web browsers like Epiphany, etcetera.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of conspire back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 18 months.

If you are still interested in adopting conspire, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 461136 ITP: conspire --  An advanced, lightweight IRC client for UNIX.
 owner 461136 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <461136@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team
