#1233 Nonresponsive maintainer: steve
Closed None Opened 5 years ago by jorti.

I request to take over the package amavisd-new, as steve seems not to have time to fix any bug, like [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=695589 #695589] which is 3 years old.

I have opened two threads in the devel list, and seems there is no objections.

I've already been granted owner privileges over amavisd-new.

Steve owns 165 other packages: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/users/packages/steve?acls=owner

kevin has sent him a direct email since it wasn't clear if that had already been done. FESCo will discuss next week if we need to orphan his other packages or not.

I pinged Stephen on the social medias, and he says that he's been very busy with work. He'd like to find new primary maintainers for his packages and still be a comaintainer. Is that a thing we can do?

I'm willing to take over Steve's perl* packages plus cpanspec. I'll send him a mail to coordinate the transfer.

Yes, absolutely. We just need to make an announcement about it, then have some way of people telling us which packages they wish to take over. I guess we could just reuse this ticket?

Perhaps we should do that after psabata has taken the perl ones...

+1 to Kevin's propsal.

  • AGREED: steve will be changed to comaintainer and the packages orphaned with the perl-* packages assigned to psabata (+7 -0 0:0) (t8m, 19:21:42)

I only have been granted owner on the devel branch of amavisd-new, as it seems I was too fast asking for permissions before fesco approval, and the request was halted. My apologies.

Now I would like to take care of the rest of the branches, should I do another CVS admin request?

Thank you.

Packages re-assigned or orphaned and announce sent to devel-announce.
