I was simply not aware anyone was activily maintaining some of the others already! It had also been a long time since I heard from Mat. If there is anything I can specifically do to help make these packages easier to maintain debs for, I would be happy to do so.

In regard to GNU Bayonne, it might make sense to also package the "vpb" driver package. The voicetronix driver and api is available under the GPL (well, LGPL in most recent releases). This would make it very easy to take a Debian build, apt-get the VPB driver and Bayonne (and of course the other dependent packages), and have a functional telephony server. At some point the capi4linux work will also become more standard and replace isdn4linux in the 2.5/2.6 kernel tree, and that should also become a Bayonne dependency.

GNU Common C++ has, as a dependency, the GNOME xml library (libxml2) and libz. GNU Bayonne on the other hand can have, as potential dependencies, Python and perl 5.6. This is if one builds GNU Bayonne with support for loading Python and Perl as resident interpreters (much like what mod_perl is for apache). GNU Bayonne can also build a DSO for tcl (although that is more common), and a sunrpc module, although I know nobody making use of it. (I still need to add a DSO for guile...) This is in addition to the depencendies on GNU Common C++, ccAudio, ccRTP, and ccScript. This will make Bayonne a bit tricker to package than most things.

Other potential Bayonne dependencies can include non-free telephony drivers where explicit permission to link had been granted, but none of these are part of Debian and all are optional builds, so these need not be considered in a pure Debian system. In addition to Bayonne itself, there is a newer package, BayonneDB, which will offer transactional database services. It is not yet part of GNU, but is under the GPL and will over time become a standard auxillory package for use with Bayonne. BayonneDB sits between Bayonne realtime services and non-realtime SQL systems. It has a plugin for Postgres, and I would like to do one for mysql.

Finally, there is Apennine, which sits above Bayonne, BayonneDB, and the rest of GNUCOMM. It offers XMLRPC services to these systems. There will be some additional packages added soon...

I need to watch more closely what is happening over at Debian. Actually I had thought about becoming a Debian developer myself for a long time, but I simply have been involved in so many things that I did not think I could give it the time or proper attention it would deserve. When I have no versions/releases of packages, is there anywhere it would be convenient to post announcements for these so that those maintaining debs are aware?

Hi David,

This is nice to have a Debian maintainer for GNU ccAudio. As it happens, the newest release of ccAudio now depends on GNU Common C++ also being installed, so it would make sense to have someone maintain a deb for this as well now. I think Bradley Kuhn had asked about this. Actually I would be happy having all of my packages maintained in Debian by someone, because it is hard to keep up with packaging as well as everything else, and I do appreciate any help I can get.

I think we have pretty much most your packages covered.

Mat Zimmerman is currently maintaining your Common C++ library at

I have currently got ccaudio, ccrtp and ccscript:

and Maurizio Boriani has given his intention to package bayonne,
although if Maurizio hasn't gotten to far I might have a go at
bayonne, but I am pretty limited by hardware.

One way to quicky update the scripts and the other parts of the configure script is to delete the old and ltxxx from libtools in the config directory and simply run the "./reconfig" command I provide with each of my packages. This recopies from the local host and rebuilds configure with the local automake/autoconf macros.

Thanks for that.

Hi ccaudio-devel,

I am the Debian GNU/Linux maintainer of your ccaudio library, as
outlined in the attched email we have had some problem with
building your library on the hppa architure due to the older
config.{guess,sub} files in your library.

I have updated these files for the Debian packages but you might also
like to modify your upstream archive as well.

Please maintain the Cc: in any further email as that is how we track
our correspondance.

Package: libccaudio
Version: 0.5.0-1
Severity: important

The versions of config.sub and config.guess used in this package are
out of date.  This means that your package will not build on some, or
all, of hppa, ia64, s390 or sh.  Please update them from and notify upstream to do the same.
