Hi, I've not have had time lately to maintain these packages properly and it'll be best for everyone to have them officialy orphaned. First come - first serve.

Gregory Package: opendchub Description: DC (Direct Connect P2P network) hub clone Open DC hub is a Unix/Linux version of the hub software for the Direct Connect network. Direct Connect is a file sharing network made up by hubs, to which clients can connect. It offers offers peer-based file-sharing. In practise it works better than gnutella and other similar systems as it allows dc hubs (servers) administators to require clients to share specified amount of data. The amount is usually based on type of client's connection and it is used not to hurt or exclude anybody but to make file sharing "fair play". . This version supports most of the features of the official hub. Some of the currently supported features are: * Searching for files, * Connecting to users, both in active and passive mode, * Messaging in open chat, * Private messaging, * Registering users, * Kicking users (for OP:s), * Banning users (for Admins), * Uploading hub address and description to public hub list, * Hublinking, which makes it possible to search on other hubs connnected to the network. .

It's administrated through a tcp connection, for example with telnet, which makes it possible to administer remotely, given that the user has the administration password.
