#1091 NRM: Request ownership change for mediawiki
Closed None Opened 8 years ago by mooninite.

= phenomenon =
The mediawiki package is several years out of date.[[BR]]
Fedora version: 1.16 (2010)[[BR]]
Current upstream: 1.20 (2012)

There are numerous security fixes, bug fixes, and enhancements. I would like to release mediawiki 1.19 for Fedora 17 and 18, and 1.20 for rawhide. The 1.19 release is a special "long-term release".

= reason =
NRM bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=850937 [[BR]]
NRM thread on devel list: http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/devel/2013-February/178266.html [[BR]]
I have attempted to gain commit access but I never received a response to my request.

= recommendation =
I am willing to take over as primary maintainer. I have already produced a working mediawiki 1.19 package that can be reviewed if necessary.

Spec: http://michael.cronenworth.com/RPMS/mediawiki.spec [[BR]]
SRPM: http://michael.cronenworth.com/RPMS/mediawiki-1.19.3-0.1.fc17.src.rpm

I agree with the recommendation. Having separate mediawiki1XX packages as there are currently is a very confusing situation.

Adding meeting keyword.

I think the seperate mediawikiXXX packages may well still be needed in EPEL, but consolidating in Fedora would be great.

I agree update of mediawiki in Fedora would be good. Updates in EPEL doesn't seem to be so smart move. I would recommend more versions if maintainer agrees to maintain all of them.
I can't attend the meeting, so +1 for Michael as maintainer if we don't have any reply from the previous maintainer.

agreed make daumas (mooninite) the maintainer and solicit for co-maintainers for the owner's other packages. (+5,0,0)

Ownership reassignment done.
