Welcome to the joys of Open Source.
This is the reason, why I install Ubuntu and Suse as dualboot.
The troubles with both distros are nearly the same, but some apps work
very well with one, but not with the other.
It is easy to package for a
distribution that you use. A lot harder for one you don't.
Especially if it uses an entirely different package architecture.
But this is an easy and noticeable way to contribute to a project.
I don't have the skills and possibilities to compile it on a daily
basis, but I am happy to test a rpm package.
It would be great if jitsi would be accepted at the packman repo:
http://packman.links2linux.de/ Probably the biggest and best additional
repo for Opensuse.
There is a mailinglist too:
AFAIK, you can post to the list without subscription.
I have sent this mail to the packman-ml already:

Betreff: [packman] Jitsi-repo
Jitsi (ex sip-communicator) is one of the best SIP and messenger
programm, written in Java, I found. At the moment the rpm-version is
unmaintained. It would be great, if jitsi could be added by Packman.
Unfortunately I had problems to install it with Opensuse. I think there
must be a few modifications made with the dependencies, eg:
"java >= 1.5.0", and not "java >= 1:1.5.0"
For people who use messenger services and SIP, jitsi is my 1st
recommendation. Jitsi is the simplest way, because of 1 app, for audio
via sip and audio via xmpp.
So is there anyone, who will build jitsi for Opensuse?
Also, as a separate bug note... Since it seems the RPMs are no
longer being built, we aught to remove the link. At least until
someone else can take it over.
Hopefally it will get into packman. Maybe the coders of Jitsi can
