RFS: YSM ICQ client
I am searching a sponsor for a wonderfull package, named ysmv7 (you seek
me, a text client for ICQ).
Why it is so important to debian (at my opinion)?
First of all, it is a nice, small, with clear interface, full of humor
client. It doesn't depend on any ncurses, as centericq. Ok, I
understand, that many people think about console clients as becomed
obsolete and not so featured. This client includes all standart
features, and simplicity of console utils. I am using this client with
screen program, and it looks powerfull.
There was an attempt to include this package in the distro about half a
year ago, but it died!-( Now, there is another one reason for
uploading this package to Debian. Acording to statistics, ".deb" file
was downloaded about 100 (near one hundred!-) times from my and Antony's
server (this servers are listed at the official YSM site). I can open
apache logs, if that would be necessary!-)
Hm. Now technic characteristics.
You can download files here:
or add follow line to /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://kastalia.cs.msu.su/ debian/
First ten features:
1. consoled based client
2. ICQ protocol version 7 and 8.
3. plaintext and encrypted (AES algorithm) message sending.
4. plaintext and encrypted (AES algorithm) file transfers.
5. contacts download and upload from/to ICQ servers.
6. search features.
7. invisible, visible and ignore lists management.
8. fingerprinting of remote clients.
9. sending/receiving of URLs.
10. sending/receiving of contacts.
So, as you see, this is a pretty software, a popular software, a ... Can
anybody sponsor me? Or is there some reason, why this software shouldn't
be included in Debian?!
