Liblarch tarballs

Asked by mrk on 2012-02-13

Guys, please let me first congratulate you all with upcoming release. I believe it would be awesome! Thank you a lot for your hard work!
I'm packaging GTG for FreeBSD and, since liblarch was pulled out of GTG code base to independent package, i need liblarch tarball to create a new GTG dependency package. It has a nice site with cute pictures, but there is no reliable download source, that FreeBSD users could use for downloading :(. Would you please release liblarch tarball untill 0.2.9 itself? How about putting it on PyPi? It will be a great help for GTG packagers.

Thank you!

Actually, even version/branch tagging on github will do. Because github will create versioned tarballs on demand. But PyPi or Gnome ftp is a best choice.

Hi mrk,

We will upload some tarballs today. You took us by surprise in the middle of our work ;-)

Thanks a lot! I'm sorry, but it's better to ask for this sooner then later :)

mrk> Don't forget that GTG 0.2.9 will be based on branch lp:~gtg/gtg/gtg-0.2.9 (not on trunk). Differences are not so big: removed problematic RTM backend, Evolution backend and removed pocketmod template for Export and print plugin. They don't work and will be (hopefully) repaired before releasing GTG 0.3

mrk (cvs-src) said : #5

Yeah, I see that it was last merged just 16h ago, but thanks for clarification. Afaik pockedmode wasn't there in 0.2.4/0.2.5, so users will not miss it. Evolution and RTM were, but the improvements of 0.2.9 fully cover this little problems :)

@mrk : don't hesitate to update https://live.gnome.org/liblarch/installation when packages are done

Oh, thanks! GTG will need both liblarch and liblarch-gtk, correct?
I have no access on gnome sites so I will not be able to edit it myself.
But here is how this will looks like.

Right now we have this page http://www.freshports.org/deskutils/gtg
It have instructions on how to install GTG from FreeBSD ports.
There will be analogues pages for liblarch and liblarch-gtk in "devel" category soon.
But GTG users actually not need to know anything about liblarch - it will be installed as dependency automatically.

I tell you when it will be done.

And one more question. Does this two libs are python3 ready?

mrk (cvs-src) said : #9

Just added them into the FreeBSD ports tree:
http://www.freshports.org/devel/py-liblarch/
http://www.freshports.org/devel/py-liblarch_gtk/

As far i understand (by quick checking the source) they are not yet python3 compatible. py-liblarch needs py-gobject as dependency, and py-liblarch_gtk needs pygobject and pygtk2.

And answering to my previous question - yes, GTG need both liblarch and liblarch_gtk :).
Thanks. This question is now really solved.
