Hey,

I would like to get rid of

Archiving rsnapshop - A backup tool

Base:System collectl - A very extensive system monitoring tool

Base:System fs-check - Warning mails about full filesystems

Base:System pwgen - Password generator

Base:System rlwrap - Readline wrapper for commands without readline.
Command history for telnet for instance.

devel:tools rpmrebuild - Re-package a binary RPM from the installed
files on the system.

multimedia:apps ripit - Commandline audio ripper

multimedia:apps tvtime - TV player

network ez-ipupdate - dyndns etc. updater

network:utilities knock - A tool to do something after a specific
sequence of port hits. Port knocking.

network:utilities pdsh - A distributed remote shell

They are all very low maintenance (I basically haven’t touched them for
years). If you are interested in maintaining one of those, let me know.
Otherwise I’ll drop them :slight_smile:

MJS> I’m the author of collectl and didn’t even know someone was doing anything with it on SuSE - guess it wasn’t publicized much. I just assumed people downloaded/installed the RPM from SourceForge if they wanted it to run on SuSE. I’m not a SuSE person myself but if someone does raise their hand to do whatever they need to do to get collectl into SuSE, I’ll be happy to help them. Just let me know.

hi Mark, thanks for dropping into the forum…this forum is where users
help other users…the largest majority of the code crunchers seldom
come to these web/http based forums–which might be why you hadn’t
‘heard’ much publicity on collectl…

the developers/packagers usually hang out on the mail lists and IRC
<http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Communication_channels> you might wanna
join the factory list and post your offer (above) to Henne’s “Packages
for sale” thread, Tue, 20 Nov 2012 12:43:45 +0100…or just monitor that
thread which begins here:

collectl is already packaged (included) in the distro, but the person
that was doing it tells that he is not going to do it anymore, and he is
asking for volunteers to take it up.

A person named Tom Abraham has already volunteered to take up collectl.
Other people are taking up other packages.

I forwarded the post here in the hope that some of the programmers here
might volunteer for some package.
