I'm the current Fedora maintainer of the twinkle package.
Sadly, it's in poor shape:
- Segfaults on start in recent fedora versions (depending on config).
- Has not had an upstream release in 4+ years.
- Has not had any response from upstream maintainer in at least that
- Uses Qt3 and a complex stack of c++ libraries.
- 8 open bugs:
Debian removed it last year, Arch moved it to a user repo instead of
the main repo last year.
So, I am going to retire this package in rawhide soon unless there's
folks with a very strong C++ background wishing to fix issues and
basically become the new upstream.
