Thread: Application to include into openSUSE: how to suggest?

  1. #1

    Default Application to include into openSUSE: how to suggest?

    Sorry, if this is a wrong place to ask, but I cannot figure out, where.

    If I want to see a particular (open-source) application in openSUSE, where, to whom should I suggest it?

    Hi
    You could look at building it yourself via the build service, since you
    don't say what the application is, have you searched here for it?
    Get It

    OK, I should have been more specific

    It is OmegaT computer-aided translation tool (OmegaT). If this application were included into openSUSE, this would be to the benefit of the both communities, IMHO, because:
    - openSUSE could be recommended to translators who want to try Linux;
    - OmegaT users could have easier install and update procedures.

    Currently, OmegaT is included into such distros as Linguas OS and PCLOS-Trans, but neither of them is as fine as openSUSE .

    I personally can easily install and update OmegaT, but for a less experienced user an out-of-the-box solution could be a better solution.

    Hi
    It's already built by someone, just called omega-t
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.0/
    It should work ok with 11.1, if it doesn't grab the source and build
    from that.

    The openSUSE wiki pages also include a package wishlist section, broken down into different software categories. You can add it to that list if you hope to see it included by default in future.

    Thanks a lot for your answers!

    It's already built by someone, just called omega-t
    Ah, that hyphen is not correct for the name, thats why I could not find it, I guess Its great, this package exists, its a pity that the version there (1.7.3) is outdated

    The openSUSE wiki pages also include a package wishlist section
    Cool! Ive already filed a request. Hopefully, they will pay attention to it

    Well, I wish success to the (open)SUSE team and to all users! Good luck!

    If the application is somewhat requested by lot's of users and it's needed to improve the distro you can submit a request to add to the OSS repository.
    See [opensuse-factory] What to do when additional packages are needed in the
    openSUSE is an open project so you should be able to have your package there.

    Also you can see Contrib repo which in the future will work as expected.

    Then another question: is there a place to vote for an application?
