Default AWOL Maintainer: Krzysztof Kurzawski

I'm afraid, Krzysztof Kurzawski is AWOL. I have tried repetitively to
contact him in

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=446883

because daypanner-0.8.1 crashes on F-9 and above. In order to fix this
bug i updated to 0.9.1.

Krzysztof owns the following packages:
* dayplanner -- An easy and clean Day Planner
* gfeed -- RSS feed reader
* greyhounds -- Greyhounds is a greyhounds racing and breeding
game
* incollector -- Information collector
* jabbin -- Instant messaging and VoIP Jabber client
* netmonitor -- The free linux network bandwidth monitor
* pic2aa -- Pic2AA is tool for converting jpeg/png to AA (Ascii
Art) images
* scythia -- Just a small ftp client
* taskcoach -- Your friendly task manager
* wavextract -- Program for extracting embedded audio data from
JPEG images
* xhotkeys -- Hotkeys for the X-Window
* yoltia -- Qt based picture editing program
* youtube-dl -- Small command-line program to download videos from
YouTube

If nobody volunteers I'm willing to pick up dayplanner, although I'm not
a perl expert.

If anybody knows how to contact Krzysztof, please let us know.

Krzysztof, please respond to this mail or to bug 446883 within 2 weeks,
otherwise you are considered missing in action and your packages will
need to be orphaned.

Regards
Christoph

It's policy; see:

This is one of the policies that makes me reluctant to become a Fedora
contributor.

*Stupid* policy. 2 weeks is really not too much.

It actually adds up to 21 days plus 3 days (where people can object). I
don't think it's unreasonable to expect a response by then (or an entry
on the Vacation page if a maintainer knows that they'll be away for an
extended period).

Also, if the maintainer does come back, I don't think it should be a
huge problem for them to get their package back. The point of the
policy isn't to take packages away from people, it's to make sure that
packages get maintained.

Would probably be interesting to think what happened to make people
agree that it is a good idea. I am sure there are good reasons,
specially when there's an active developer wanting to do some work on
it. If/when the original packager comes back, if the newcomer's been
doing a good job, there should not be much to regret really.

In theory anyway :-)

Collaborative package maintainership makes this much *much* easier to
handle, avoiding people getting too attached to the ownership of the
package. Without it, it's always too short or two long...

cheers,

But these 2 weeks are counted after the reporter thinks that the
maintainer is away and he starts the AWOL steps. So it doesn't mean that
you must respond to every bug immediately.
