Quassel again …

For those of you running Jaunty, I’ve just updated the Quassel package to build with KDE4 integration. Also apachelogger added some goon postinst fun to create a certificate to use SSL between the client and the core if you are using the split architecture. Quassel comes with 4 package:
quassel – Use this if you don’t know what you need. It’s all in one like a traditional IRC client.
quassel-core – The sever component if you want to split quassel into a client/server system with the server elsewhere.
quassel-client – The client component for the split architecture.
quassel-data – This data package is needed for quassel and quassel-client.
Personally I use the split system (and most of the quassel developers do to). The current thinking is that it’ll be the monolithic package (quassel) that we consider for the Kubuntu CD. The split architecture is just too much for new people.
So, please test. The quassel devs have been very responsive to issues. I had a build issue with the split architecture packages yesterday and it was fixed today. Please file bugs.

    Will this get backported to Intrepid by any chance?

    I’ve done a backport in my PPA and expect I’ll do an official one once I’ve done some additional testing.
    I will warn you the the Knotify notifications look “Not very good” with KDE 4.1. With 4.2 they look much better.
