I'm sorry to say I have no real interest in Linkage hacking. In fact,
it's somewhat the opposite.
My real reason for this inquiry was that currently, Fedora's Linkage
build requires an older libtorrent version (0.13.x) to be maintained
in the repositories; and I'd really like to bump that to the recent
release series (0.14.x) for better features (and libtorrent upstream
support); and it would also allow Deluge's package to decrease in size
and complexity (since there would no longer be the need for using an
in-tarball libtorrent copy inside Deluge, for one). This would also
allow better support for other libtorrent-based packages in Fedora,
such as qbitorrent and Miro)
However, until now the need for that as a dependency of the Linkage
package prevented me from updating it in the deemed-stable Fedora (9,
10) releases - since that would break API/ABI compatibility. The whole
point of my question about this is that I was wondering if it would be
reasonable to discontinue those downstream efforts (led by drago01) of
Fedora's Linkage package in order to more fully support these other
packages such as Deluge and Miro, et al.
I don't want to seem cold-hearted or such; but is it safe to presume,
then, that Linkage is more or less dead upstream? Are there plans to
resurrect/fork it or take it in a different path?
Thanks very much for your replies; and for all the work you've done on
Linkage up until now. :)
