as (some of) you probably already have noticed, I have been a really
lousy maintainer for the last 1-2 years. I am just too busy with my
dayjob and in real life. Fortunately people like Kevin and Mukundan
have stepped up and took care of my Xfce packages. Thank you, I really
appreciate your help.
In March of last year I joined SUSE. My idea was to do SUSE /
Enterprise in my job and continue with Fedora / community as my hobby,
but this doesn't really work out. You have to eat your own dog food
and work with the community. I am no longer using Fedora on a daily
basis, thus I shouldn't maintain it. I will step down form most Fedora
roles, most importantly from my role as packager.
I just realized that I had a various ACL requests from Mukundan,
Robert and Michael pending in Package-DB. So far, I approved the
requests for commit access from Mukundan because I have already worked
with him, but I am unsure what to do with the others.
Robert, Michael: Are you still interesting in (co-)maintaining the
packages you applied for?
Kevin, Mukundan: Who should become primary owner of the packages?
And who of you four is willing to actually look after the packages,
means who will take care of watchbugzilla and watchcommitts?
Both Kevin and I have been looking at the bugzilla of various Xfce
components. As it is, I have been touching pretty much any and almost
every Xfce package already to fix bugs and build new releases (as much
as time permitted, that is).
I can become the primary contact for all of your Xfce packages (my FAS
is nonamedotc). I am using (solely) Xfce on a daily basis on both Fedora
and EL anyway and at the moment, I do have the time to be able to handle
Many thanks for all your work in maintaining these packages for years
and very best wishes for your new job.
