So it’s meteorological spring, at least in the Northern Hemisphere, and I’m preparing to move house for the first time in almost a decade so of course it’s time to procrastinate and have a spring clean of the packages I maintain!
A number of these I’ve maintained longer than I’ve been in my current flat and like a lot of the contents of my flat I’m not sure why I still have them! A bunch of them I packaged when MeeGo was the coolest thing to run on your Netbook and before GNOME-3 was stable and packaged and I wanted to run MeeGo on Fedora on my ASUS EeePC 901! Then a bunch I’ve acquired over the years because various things I was interested in depended on them. There’s others I actually have no idea why I own them! Anyway, with my day job doing “Device Edge” or “IoT” and with less spare non work time (why yes, apparently I do have a life outside of Fedora, who knew!) I decided it’s high time I relinquished the maintainership of these packages and let someone else love them or allow them to sail off into the sunset of their, probably long overdue, retirement!
So without further ado the list of packages I relinquishing is as follows…. Please reply to the list message or message me on IRC/email (if you know the Fedora packaging process) to (co)maintain something in this list:
* GNOME related: clutter clutter-gtk clutter-gst cogl libchamplain rest * A UPnP stack, used (or at least used to be) by GNOME and others: gssdp gupnp gupnp-av gupnp-tools gupnp-dlna gupnp-igd rygel * Ancient gnome related (please retire or move the deps to copr already): gamin libglade2 libgnomecanvas gnome-themes ORBit2 * GTK VoIP client. Mostly dead upstream. Has explicit deps/tightly coupled with opal/ptlib: ekiga opal ptlib * iOS/iMobiledevice - Apple iDevice support: ifuse libplist libusbmuxd libimobiledevice usbmuxd * Random / no idea TBH: libfakekey (kde-connect-libs) icon-slicer telepathy-mission-control loudmouth A list of packages that I still have an interest in but would appreciate a co-maintainer: dotconf festival-freebsoft-utils speech-dispatcher flite csound
