this message is about taking care of people that are missing in action
in Alioth's pkg-java team.
What have I done? I've removed many of the MIA people now. Thanks to
Niels Thykier for assisting me. We have started by white listing all
people that are known to us as being more or less active. From the
remaining list we have filtered out everyone who has committed some code
to either svn or git during the last 12 months. I have removed the
remaining people from the project.
What can you do if you wanted to stay? Just login into Alioth, go to the
project page and click the link for joining the team. Some team admin
will happily reconfirm your membership.
Why didn't I ask for permission? The membership list is public and that
is why anyone could have just generated a list of MIA people from that
information. That could embarrass people who have contributed to Debian
in past. I want to avoid such problems. I will never publish a list of
people that got removed by me - not even the number of them.
Why didn't i play the
game? It is too bureaucratic and time consuming. Everybody is invited to
