  Description     : IRC Services for IRC networks providing services like Nick- and ChanServ

Services provides for definitive nickname and channel ownership, as well as the ability to send
messages ("memos") to offline users, and gives IRC operators considerably more control over the
network. In particular, Services provides the following features to an IRC network:

 * Nickname management: Services allows users to "register" nicknames. 
 * Channel management: Like nicknames, Services allows users to register channels as well. 
 * Messages to offline users: Allowing users to leave messages for offline users. 
 * Centralized network management: Features which allow IRC operators greater control over the network

See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=424844 . Inclusion
of ircservices in Debian may be problematic.

retitle 515134 ITP: ircservices-church -- IRC Services for IRC networks
providing services like Nick- and ChanServ

Hi,

> Inclusion of ircservices in Debian may be problematic.

I missed this one when I looked for ITPs/RTPs. I've did a little bit
testing over the last hour and it seems that there is no longer
any problem building on amd64.

The very generic name is another problem discussed in #424844, I see
no problem in renaming, especially because there are currently no
other IRC Services packages in the repositories and I don't want
to support the wrong impression that those are the one and only
ircservices.

Regards,
  Stefan

Unless I misunderstand your assertion or am taking it out of
context, I would hold up at least the dancer-services package as a
counterexample (though I expect there are others, this is one I
actively use).

Sorry, my search didn't turn up the dancer-services, as I searched for
packages containing the term irc.

Andrew Church's IRCServices is dead upstream, other than "security
fixes", and those will most likely stop within Squeeze's release
lifecycle. Do you intend to maintain it yourself?

If not, I strongly urge you to not package this.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of ircservices-church back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

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

 retitle 515134 ITP: ircservices-church -- IRC Services for IRC networks
 owner 515134 !
 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 <515134@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
--
