#2039 Unresponsive maintainer takeover for sqlcipher package
Closed: Insufficient data 3 months ago by churchyard. Opened 6 months ago by caravel.

I have tried contacting Siddharth Sharma for a month. I tried via Bugzilla, IRC and dev mailing list. I also saw an older issue for this update that has received no response.

This is my review request for the updated package:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1661595

This is the bug I filed for the out-of-date package:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1651956

This is a bug from December 2017 that did not receive any response either:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1528491


Per the policy, you need to first post to devel list to ask if anyone else knows how to contact them. Please link that post here.

I feel like the policy isn't completely clear on whether you need to file a dedicated bug about the non-responsiveness or if what you did is fine, but I'm inclined to accept the comments on the bug as-is.

Thanks for your quick response.

I posted to devel list and asked if anyone else knows how to contact them here:

Please feel free to take this package.

@caravel are you a packager? When I tried to assign the package to you at https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/sqlcipher it did not work because you do not seem to be a packager. If you are a packager, please log in to above URL and notify me.

@till I am currently in the process of getting sponsored, so it will probably be a few more days until the package can be assigned to me, if everything goes well.

@caravel @till: What's the status here?

If we need this to move forward, I think we can treat @siddharths statement above as permission to go through the "sponsorship via co-maintainer" route.

"sponsorship via co-maintainer" route is IMHO intended in a case where the current maintainer mentors the new one. Not where the current maintainer just acks that the new maintainer can take the package. I'd prefer if a packaging sponsor works with @caravel trough the standard route of getting sponsored.

@caravel How does that work so far for you? Is somebody working with you to get you sponsored into the packagers group or are you seeking somebody?
