#508 Orphan package adopter
Closed: accepted 3 days ago by kevin. Opened 5 months ago by sumitgarg.

Hello, I would like to maintain orphan package plantuml. Can I request to add myself into packager group to do so?

Id - sumitgarg

Thanks


Hi @sumitgarg , looks like @bytehackr has already taken up platnuml and is working on getting sponsored to take it up (see #507 )

If you're interested in other packages (orphaned or not), you can help maintain them by opening pull requests etc., and that'll help you get sponsored:

@ankursinha thank you the update. Sure, I will look for another packages with right approach.

I would like to maintain Orphan package https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/cptutils and already submitted PR https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/cptutils/pull-request/1 for https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1877493 .

However, scratch build failed because not able to update source in lookaside cache as I am not part of packger group.

Can I request for sponsorship for FAS - sumitgarg to move forward ?

I am willing to maintain Orphan package e00compr as well. saga is dependant on e00compr-devel.

I have just taken e00compr in order to make some significant improvements to the packaging, such as migrating it from a static library to a shared one. However, once you have obtained sponsorship as a packager, and if you are still interested, I am happy to add you as a co-maintainer or transfer the package to you.

However, scratch build failed because not able to update source in lookaside cache as I am not part of packger group.

You should be able to do a scratch build without uploading sources to the lookaside cache as follows:

fedpkg scratch-build --srpm

If you are working in some arbitrarily-named branch in your fork, rather than directly in the rawhide branch, you will need something like:

fedpkg --release rawhide scratch-build --srpm

I assume we can close this now? Please reopen if there's anything more to do here.
