Update on the asterisk-gui ITP: not going anywhere for now.

I spent some time recently trying to update asterisk-gui .

Sadly I could not get much farther. It kept looping at startup and
upstream has been quite uncooperative. Debugging the maze of client-side
Javascript has proved to be quite uncooperative:

http://bugs.digium.com/view.php?id=14840

Current version of the package will not work with latest Asterisk 1.6.1
and DAHDI. My work-in-progress patches to adapt some SVN version (that
does support them) is at my working copy if anybody wants to pursue
this. 

But it seems that the asterisk-gui is something designed for asterisk 
running as root and executing shell commands provided from the user with
minimal or no filtering. This is not something I like.

Actually I was under the impression that the "asterisk-gui" was
built as an example not intended to be used in production. :-)
Any reason to have asterisk-gui on your wishlist at all?

Hello Tzafrir,

Do you have any update concerning the packaging of asterisk-gui?

I saw on the pkg-voip SVN [1] that you have been actively working on
the package. :)

If you need any help, I would be glad to give you a hand.

Kind regards,
 Ignace Mouzannar

My main issue with this package is that I have no idea if upstream has
plans of maintaining it. I'm not interested enough in it to maintain it
for a couple of years if upstream drops the ball.

Apart from that, the package will probably needs a few minor updates.

Frankly I'd love to see the long-promised 2.0.5 by upstream.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of asterisk-gui back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

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

 retitle 496258 ITP: asterisk-gui -- web-based user interface for the Asterisk PBX
 owner 496258 !
 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 <496258@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
--
