Updated the package, kicked off a rawhide build:

Comment 2 Conrad Meyer 2012-04-20 05:12:32 UTC
Nevermind, looks like we're missing a dep on hgtools. (Why the hell does irclib require a mercurial package to build? I don't know.)

Looks like there may have been quite a few releases since this. ->

Latest version looks to be 8.9.1

Comment 5 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2014-11-28 22:36:21 UTC
I don't have time to maintain packages these days but I was able to put together initial packages for the update and all the new deps:

Easiest way I've found to download all the srpms:

$ wget
$ sudo chown root:root toshio-python-irclib-update-fedora-20.repo
$ sudo mv toshio-python-irclib-update-fedora-20.repo /etc/yum.repos.d
$ mkdir irclib
$ cd irclib              
$ yumdownloader --disablerepo='*' --enablerepo='toshio-python-irclib-update' --source '*'

4 new packages and the update to python-irclib itself.

Comment 6 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2014-11-28 22:41:37 UTC
Oops, made a mistake specifying the package deps.  One moment while I fix those.

Comment 7 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2014-11-28 23:48:51 UTC
Okay, all fixed.  Packages are ready for whoever would like to run with them.

Comment 8 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2016-02-28 12:20:40 UTC
Copr has been updated (laest release)  to

Comment 9 Miro Hrončok 2016-06-28 12:45:03 UTC
This bug has been opened 4 years ago. I think that Luke, the maintainer, doesn't really have time to take care of this package (no response).
Toshio, who has built new version with deps in COPR, clearly says he has no time to maintain this in Fedora.
I suggest to orphan this package. If someone wants it, they can take over the maintenance.
Quick repoquery suggests nothing from Fedora requires this package.

Luke, Toshio, what do you think?

Comment 10 Lumír Balhar 2016-08-05 12:19:08 UTC
One more month without a response. I think we should take this package and orphan it.

Comment 11 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2016-08-05 14:39:16 UTC
Find by me but I'm not the owner so I'm not a good person to ask.  I did ping lmacken about the orphaning question in #fedora-python so hopefully he'll reply here.

Comment 12 Luke Macken 2016-08-23 09:47:31 UTC
Yes, I'm planning on orphaning this package. Feel free to take it over if you wish.

Comment 14 Lumír Balhar 2017-10-30 07:17:55 UTC
I found out that irclib is actively developed and it has Python 3 support so I think it's a good idea to keep it in Fedora.

I sent an email to package owner but I cannot be sure that it reaches right person so if anybody here has rights, please make me the main admin and I'll take care of this package.

Thank you

The package is retired in rawhide so there is nothing to do.
