R: Moving noip from [community] to AUR

Yo,
I've just to point out that the free hostname expires just if the IP associated to it is not updated for 30 days.
About the moving decision, I've no decisional power for it; I'm using noip2 on my personal Ubuntu Server and
I had to compile it on my own (Ubuntu has no AUR and no PPA for it, doh).
Maybe I should create a package... :)
Kudos,
Giovanni

Hi,

Some time ago I adopted the noip package. It's a GPL client that
connects to what seems to be a commercial service offered by
no-ip.com. The free service offered by them has a hostname that
expires every 30 days.
I am a bit surprised that this was an official package in the first
place. When asking for opinions on IRC, there was support for moving
the noip package to AUR.

In addition to this, there seems to be several alternative clients,
with slightly different versioning schemes. Both here:
http://www.noip.com/download?page=linux and here:
http://onevista.com/noip2.html.
This confusion generated a low volume of out-of-date flags.

Absence of kdelibs3

I noticed that kdelibs3, which was demoted from the main repositories in
May, is not present in the AUR. Is this by design or a mistake? There are
many packages in the AUR that depend on kdelibs3, so not having it
available breaks all of those packages. Whether some of those packages
should be deleted is another story, though.

It just smells bad. Moving it.

Fwd: [Server/distributed Arch] nagios/nrpe -> [community]

Hi all,
  I'd like to amend my previous request for lldpd and/or ladvd to be
moved to [community] or [extra], and add these packages:

nagios
nagios-nrpe
nagios-nrpe-plugin (?)
nagios-nsca

Again, there are not many people using Arch in data center
environments, so the vote counts on these packages may be
disproportionately smaller relative to their actual importance to the
Arch community in terms of installed machines.

We have a lot of work to do in order to make ArchLinux more friendly
to administrate in large, distributed deployments such as globally
distributed data centers out of the box in a supported/official.  I'm
looking forward to the day Arch can compete with RHEL/Fedora.

Inactivity starting 4th August

Hey guys!

I will be inactive starting Monday 4th August. I will be moving to a
different city for a job (yay, for the first time I'm gong to be paid
for programming :-)) and I won't have an Internet connection for some
time except from the mobile phone.

Anyway, from the packaging side most of my packages doesn't require
much attention. The only exception may be luxrays/luxrender which
often require patching for newer boost and which tends to suffer from
compiler bugs a lot. Also, there is one open bugreport for cdrtools
(FS#41343), but it seems to be an upstream problem.

ArchLinux TU Application: Fabio Castelli (Muflone)

Hi everyone

My name's Fabio Castelli (aka Muflone) from Italy and I wish to apply to
become a TU for ArchLinux to maintain some packages in the community
repository. My TU sponsor is György Balló.

I actually work as a software developer in a local private company and I
use GNU/Linux since the 1998, having started with Slackware 2.0.
Many years have passed through Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu and finally
ArchLinux that actually I use daily at home and at my job place since a
couple of years. Debian is still often used for software packaging, to
deploy services in my network and for less experienced colleagues that
needs some GNU/Linux environment in my job place.

My experience in development is long term, starting in '80s with C=64
Basic, actually I work daily in Python (under Windows, GNU/Linux and
i5/OS, both desktop, server and web platforms), Delphi and VB (under
Windows), RPG/400 and CL (under i5/OS) and many other things which I use
less often, like C or J2EE.

My open source contributions are a really long list but let's try to not
be boring:

- maintainer for over 160 packages in the AUR, most of them updated often:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/?SeB=m&K=Muflone
https://github.com/muflone/pkgbuilds/

- maintainer for some Debian packages:
