Visual programming languages needed

maddox - 8 months ago -

Scratch is included, but there are other visual programming languages such as https://www.shinoe.org/cameleon/download.html and others: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_programming_language and those which are free are needed.

i suppose that depends how one defines "needed" - per "the arch
philosophy", everything that is truly needed, is in [core] -
everything else goes in [extra] or [community], if it is deemed
as "desirable", otherwise, it will probably be found in the AUR

parabola does not recommend users to the AUR, so some
packages can be added to [pcr] instead, if someone opens a
packaging request and makes a good case for why it is
"desirable" - then it needs to be audited, and decided if the
maintenance workload out-weighs the desirability factor

Alright. I am suggesting, management decides. I would say that visual
programming languages are desirable.

it only it were that simple - between a suggestion and a
final decision, there lies several hours of work, on average

it would help if someone had a PKGBUILD ready, even more if
someone audited all of the files, and yet more if someone made
sure it's dependencies are satisfied, and it can compile on all
of parabola's arches

i think that this forum category should be removed - packaging
suggestions on the forum, will be easy to lose track of - there
is a more traceable procedure for this

Alright, I did not know how it works. That is definitely
constructive. The forum sub-heading sounds like "please suggest", it
does not say to include PKGBUILD. But if it is so, why not, I can try
when I see something is working well.

Good instruction.

yes, one of the forum moderators added this category - i think
it should be removed, to encourage packaging requests on the
bug tracker instead
