#1315 Non-responsive maintainer: deji
Closed None Opened 6 years ago by smani.

deji has not responded to bug #1098680 for over a month. The bug contains a patch which I'd like to see applied since it is blocking some of my (upcoming) package reviews.

Besides the attempts through bugzilla, I have also tried contacting deji (as well as the comaintainer lrm29) directly via email, as well as posted on fedora-devel [1]. None of those attempts were successful.

I see that deji is maintainer of a couple of high-profile packages [2], so it is unfortunate that he is unresponsive. It would probably be worth to double-check whether really no-one knows how to reach him. fedora-active-user gives

In the case his packages do need to be reassigned, I would be willing to take over scotch.


the process you need to follow is listed at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Policy_for_nonresponsive_package_maintainers your next step is "After other 7 days (now 3 weeks total), the reporter posts a formal request to the Fedora devel list with the bug link, indicating all reasonable efforts to contact the maintainer have failed and that they wish to take over the package."

Then a FESCo member can ack it

Uhm ok, but just for clarification: does a fesco ticket need to be filed at all? Asking because last time I only posted on -devel and then was told to file a ticket.

Anyhow, request posted on -devel [1].

I've acked this on the devel list, but there's a short delay to get pkgdb up to handling mass orphaning correctly. Hopefully this will be done in the next week or so.

Sorry for the delay.
