ITP: konversation -- User friendly Internet Relay Chat client for KDE (fwd)
[It looks like the x-debbugs-cc part of bugs.d.o is not working atm (nor is
the index page for wnpp showing new bugs), so I'm resending this message to
pertinent lists. I know the upload queue is down due the hack, but it would
probably be good to make this ITP known so we don't get several duplicates.
I also need to find a sponsor. =) -nate]

* Description : User friendly Internet Relay Chat client for KDE
Konversation is a client for the Internet Relay Chat (IRC) protocol.
It is easy to use and well-suited for novice IRC users, but novice
and experienced users alike will appreciate its many features:
* Tabbed channel and server windows
* IRC color support
* Pattern-based message highlighting and OnScreen Display
* Multiple identity support
* Powerful, multi-language scripting support (with DCOP)
* Customizable command aliases
* NickServ-aware logon (for registered nicknames)
* Smart logging
* Traditional or enhanced-shell-style nick completion
* DCC resuming
I have been maintaining CVS snapshot packages of this program for a month or
so now, primarily for my own entertainment. However, when asked recently
about uploading a stable release to Debian, I realized that this was only
logical. So here I am.
This package is lintian and linda* clean.
If anyone wants to co-maintain, I'm happy to share or help or whatever.
The package I propose uploading is at the following repository:
deb http://debian.houseofnate.net/ unstable proposed
deb-src http://debian.houseofnate.net/ unstable proposed
The latest version of the debian directory can also be browsed at my
Comments and criticism are most welcome. =)
P.S. If anyone wants to sponsor me for this package, please let me know. I
have tried to make the .diff.gz as clean as possible for your reviewing
*I get a warning "W: konversation; Script ./usr/share/doc/konversation/
examples/dcop-away.sh is not executable.", but I think this is safe to
ignore. [2003-12-02: I have since made this warning go away.]
