Just in case this has been overlooked, there is already some effort
ongoing on the naviserver packaging. 

I filed an ITP[1] some time ago, and recently asked formally for a
first upload of the package and permissions over it (i am a DM)[2].
Volunteers to do it are of course welcome :)


Gulp! indeed I'm now remembering the ITP, but I missed the recent
update.

As the openacs maintainer, which is also dependant on
aolserver4/naviserver, i would prefer to avoid maintaining different
configurations for both, so i am in favor of just replacing the
aolserver4 package with the new naviserver one, taking into account
possible transition issues.


I would suggest to provide a migration package for AOLserver users
with a NEWS document about possible issues due to known problems.
I'll have a look to the current package. Let's move this thread on
te pkg-tcltk-devel list.
