Hi all,

I'm trying to install gale, a instant messaging system, under 1.5 with the 
eventual goal of packaging it.  I have a few basic questions though.  First 
off, is anyone currently working on gale, or has anyone already tried?  Second 
does anyone know the status of:

2) The Boehm conservative garbage collector
3) Ian Jackson's asynchronous DNS library (ADNS)
4) Bruno Haible's libiconv

As all four of these are prerquisites for gale to run.

If none of these, or reasonable equivalents, are currently implemented, I'm 
assuming the correct thing to do would be to create individual packages for 
each of them and then make gale list them as prereqs.
