#1487 The XSD maintainer does not respond since 5 months at least
Closed None Opened 5 years ago by sagitter.

= Issue =

The 'xsd'[1] maintainer is unreachable since 5 months at least.

All requests [2][3][4] for additional rebuilds hadn't any reply.

Last build current maintainer issued in koji is from 2013. This means 2 years of inactivity.

[2]https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1251682

[3]https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1098622

[4]https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/devel/2015-October/215255.html

= Reason =

The 'xsd' package seems need a new maintainer and some packagers need new builds of 'xsd' on EPEL7.

= Request =

I'm available to take over 'xsd' as new maintainer.


I think we should always add unresponsive maintainer in cc while reporting ticket.

I don't see any important issue to be fixed for xsd package, all I see maintainer is not building for epel7 branch which if requested any provenpackager can build.

Also, I see latest upstream release is already packaged in Fedora.

So either we can orphan this package or just grant access to epel7 branch for required users.

I added his mail in cc, but i think it's still useless because he does not reply since months.

The package needs updates from point of view of packaging, and it will need in future probably.

In future should we update it just on EPEL7?

I already said we can orphan xsd package totally if other people also thinks. My only concern is as follows->
It happens that some maintainer just don't want to maintain package for EPEL but only for Fedora. It may happen with anyone that he will not consider or just grant EPEL access to co-maintainers but that should not be taken that we should start filing unresponsive requests and get forcefully packages orphaned.

Is there any other cases of this maintainer's packages where he has not responded? If there are cases then count my +1 to orphan all his packages.

I agree, would be sufficient make known this to the others. :)
I don't want to force nothing, i wish to point out that i have a package blocked since weeks because of this missing package on EPEL7 and i don't know how to unblock that issue.

In others packages he is a co-maintainer, so he has not unique responsabilities.

Hi!

Thank you for adding me to the CC.

I do not have an EPEL box to test on so help with EPEL builds is appreciated.

I have granted commit access on xsd to sagitter@ Please discuss the details of other changes you plan to make to the packaging beforehand.

Thank you

Anttix.

Hi sagitter,

I see you have become co-maintainer now for xsd package and there is an epel7 branch also available. If there is nothing left to be done here then we can resolve this ticket.
