Did someone like totally forget to release a tarball for:
"strigi-0.7.6"&  "strigi-0.7.7"?

Running strigi-0.7.7 on Gentoo as part of the stable KDE release.

I presume that there are tarballs on Gentoo then.  However, a Google
search didn't find them and I don't know how to find bare sources on
Gentoo -- but that would still be getting it through a distro.

Other distros also have it -- including SRC RPMs.  However, there is
no actual release tarball from the developers.  Where did they get it?

Now BLFS has posted Strigi-0.7.7 (2012-07-04) and are suggesting
Debian for a download.  But that is only a workaround to the problem
that there is no release tarball for 0.7.6 and 0.7.7.

The Gentoo ebuild for strigi-0.7.7 seems to point to a KDE repository
so I'm not sure why you think it isn't released but maybe I'm
misunderstanding you.

Hmm, it tries to get it from git://anongit.kde.org/strigi

Yes, that GIT archive is what I was using for 0.7.6. However, as I said, it is not simple matter to get it there.

only if the
version is 9999, meaning it will fetch the current Git version. For 0.7.7,
it fetches this:

Maybe a Gentoo developer also had trouble with the package and so he made
a tarball himself?
