[jitsi-dev] Jitsi and Debian, an unstable relationship?


#1

Dear Jitsi Devs,

What is the status on getting Jitsi into Debian? It seems to be in the unstable branch for four years now? What is holding it back from reaching testing? To eventually be put into stable?

Sincerely yours,
Fred

Hi,

The answer is mainly resources.
Ingo already resolved the problem which caused rejection of the new
packages. But there is no one working on this currently.

Jitsi has a lot of dependencies and as Damemcho mentioned, one of it (javax.sdp) had licensing issues. That is solved now, but these dependencies still need to go into Debian. Basically, these packages should be created and uploaded, or updated, so that Jitsi can depend on them:
1) javax.sip
https://github.com/opentelecoms-org/java-sip-api
no ITP

2) javax.sdp
https://github.com/opentelecoms-org/java-sdp-api
no ITP

3) no name yet
https://github.com/opentelecoms-org/java-sdp-nist-bridge
no ITP

4) weupnp
https://github.com/bitletorg/weupnp
libweupnp-java -> update to 0.1.4

5) ice4j
https://github.com/jitsi/ice4j
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=698412

6) libjitsi
https://github.com/jitsi/libjitsi

2 and 3 should probably end up in one Debian package
5 depends on 2,3,4
6 depends on 5

In short: please help!

Sincerely yours,
Fred
