Default Non-responsive maintainer - Chris Ricker

Hi,

I was unsuccessful in all attempts to contact Chris Ricker (kaboom AT oobleck.net). He seems non-responsive for a long time, I did not receive any reply from him at least from February.

Tracker bug:
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=554334

Previous attempt to contact through devel:
http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/devel/2010-November/144873.html

Personally I am interested in rrdtool (and I can take it), but there are also more packages with unresolved bugs

I have to second someone taking over rrdtool. I handed it off to Chris
a while back, but have still done far more work on it since then than
he has, and I've not seen him touch an rrdtool bz in ages.

(And no, I don't want maintainership back.)

I am ready to take it (I already own it in RHEL). I think all steps in non-responsive maintainer process have been fulfilled

Please could any FESCo member approve the takeover of rrdtool (according to nonresponsive package maintainers policy)? Or should I open ticket for this?

Thanks

I'll approve it and orphan rrdtool.

Were you going to take the EPEL branches as well?

Five months later and Chris Ricker (kaboom) is still MIA.

I'd like to propose we orphan all his packages.
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/users/packages/kaboom as nothing's
really changed since the nonresponsive maintainer process was invoked on
him.

I'll take gnuchess and xboard.


In addition to the evidence raised by Jaroslav Skarvada in November,
attempts to contact him still are failing. Also

* all 8 of the 8 open bugs assigned to kaboom[1] have had zero activity
from him including
# 593629 [2] is an upstream release monitor bug which shows multiple
upstream releases with no response going back to nearly a year ago (May
2010)
# 646466 [3] is for the Remove Setuid F15 feature[4] filed in Oct
2010 with no response.
# There's also a second upstream release monitor bug, a FTBFS bug,
and two crash bugs there, as well as a bug going back to 2007, all with
no response.
* he has only ever commented on 11 [5] of his 46 [6] assigned bugs, the
last comment coming in 2008, and most of his bugs being closed by other
contributors. (this doesn't count any which were re-assigned to others
due to lack of response, such as the rrdtool bugs).
* Also of note, the last activity I can find from him in bugzilla is end
of 2009 when he filed bug 538817 [7], well over a year since his last
comment on any bug he had asignee responsibility on, and there were open
bugs assigned to him at the time (eg 221344 and 485364).
* kaboom's last koji build is well over a year ago.[8]
* Google searches don't turn up anything on him in a few years, save for
this non-responsive maintainer thread.

Yeah. ;(

I sure hope he's ok.

Sounds reasonable. I sent him another email with no reply as well.

Toshio is going to orphan his packages later today...
