  • Parent task set to #2874
  • Status changed from unconfirmed to confirmed
  • Description updated (diff)
  • Subject changed from h-client fails to install for Unresolved dependencies to [h-client]: fails to install for Unresolved dependencies

this is because python2 is no longer supported - this will be fixed only by the next h-client release

like most others related to the parent ticket, it is only missing deps (which could be reintroduced) - for now, one could self-maintain the needed python2-* packages

the next h-client is ready upstream, but not release-ready - help is needed (testing, translations, documentation, webby-things showing how easy it it to use, etc)

the main h-source/h-node project needs another kind of help - help, mostly to decide libre issues, and other proposals, about eg: which hardware and OSes to support and how to present the data user-friendly - more opinions are needed, if that interests people, do join the mailing list
