Re: [Pkg-x2go-devel] Bug#655618: ITP: nx-libs -- NX protocol libraries and binaries

Hi Reinhard, dear all,

and, from what I see, is appropriate for being uploaded to unstable. For
clarity, I think we should rename the git repository from nx-libs.git to
nx-libs-light.git. Mike, can you please handle that?


As I understand from Mike's other posting in this thread, there are
people looking at porting the agent to a newer codebase. But this is a
rarther long-term option. As are the suggestions to port x2go to SPICE.

Yes, we have still a casual but a discussion with an Austrian company that is heavily interested to provide some new NX'ish or similar technology. Very casual still, but yes.

As for the concerns with Nomachine, while it is true that NX 4.0 is no
longer GPL licensed, the 3.x codebase has seen updates, which maintain
its previous license, the GPLv3. I take this as indication that
Nomachine still has an interest in maintaining the 3.x codebase, which
included security fixes in the latest releases.

I have also had NoMachine contact before X-mas 2011 and they said that they would take a look at our patches. I have to update them about the location changes as they got informed about the Alioth Git. I will point then to X2Go Git now.

We (i.e. Alex from X2GO) also have just added a xinerama patch to NX. ;-)

From now on... using this ITP for client-only discussions.
