It has taken several days to make this complex application even ebuildable,
but now the ebuilds work fine.

LDMUD is a driver for Multi-User Domains and the historically first LPC language implementation. It is very similar to the pike language, known for Roxen and Caudium, which was derived from LPC. Its special strengths are the most natural integration of object-orientation and its 18 years of experience in server-side multi-user applications.

psyced is a distributed chat and messaging system based on the Protocol for SYnchronous Conferencing. PSYC is multicast and routed between servers and clients in a scalable and efficient way, but users can also comfortably use IRC clients, telnet, Webchat, WAP or Jabber™ to enter the network.

psyced also communicates with the network of Jabber/XMPP servers and hosts chatrooms for all of these technologies at once. They are freely programmable and cannot be hacked. It also provides gateways to several IRC networks, but unlike IRC, everyone can run a server and be an equal member of the PSYC network.

One of the core strengths of PSYC compared to XMPP and IRC is they way it has been designed to distribute messages to large recipient groups efficiently. Something IRC does okay (up to a 100k users), and XMPP by design absolutely cannot handle.

And yes, psyced is GPL'd open-source. So it's our little late xmas gift for you. I have packed up our ebuilds into http://www.psyced.org/files/gentoo.tar.bz2. The Makefile installs the ebuilds into /usr/local/portage and prompts you to emerge them. When the installation is done, edit /etc/psyc/psyced.ini, then run psyconf and start the service with /etc/init.d/psyced start. Whoops your machine responds on a broad choice of port numbers in various protocols, ready to communicate with everyone. Unless you have disabled some ports in psyced.ini, of course.

No, you don't need to emerge a PSYC client, in fact we still have to do some ebuilds for those, but also because most of them aren't at the level of comfort as your favourite IRC or Jabber client. So please, simply keep on using those and find out on http://about.psyc.pages.de/help how much different a PSYC server acts compared to your traditional IRC and Jabber servers.

And most of all, please help us make those ebuilds perfect, since perfectionism is our greatest sin. ;-)

the Makefile was referring to cvs files outside the range of the tar.. how smart.
okay so now everything should be in there....
