#9672 Create new package group: "Proton packagers"
Opened 11 days ago by jflory7. Modified 10 days ago

Summary

Create a new packager group on src.fp.o for "Proton packagers"

Background

I am the current packager of the protonvpn-cli package in Fedora. The upstream developers of ProtonVPN reached out to me about how to work together on providing the best update experience of their software to Fedora users. While there is only one package right now, the long-term goal is to gradually create more packages for an upcoming major rewrite of the application stack.

The goal is to reduce my individual package load and also bring in a new co-packager who is more directly involved with producing the upstream software. A package group also allows us greater autonomy to bring in others to support packages around Proton's Open Source technology products.

Details

Requested deadline: As soon as possible, not urgent (< 30 days?)

This ticket requests creation of a new packaging group on src.fedoraproject.org for "Proton packagers". Members of this package group are below:

Outcome

Reduction of bus factor in a package focused on user privacy and security


would proton-sig be ok?
