Default pulseaudio crashes: non-responsive maintainer Lennart Poettering

Hello,

filed month+ ago:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=643296

Simple fix of memory corruption affecting various applications incl. Firefox.

Completed "Policy for nonresponsive package maintainers" there, got an
off-list reply but still no fix commit or commit rights approval.

Just I am not going to takeover the package but requesting a commit right for
this Bug - therefore for the package "pulseaudio":
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/acls/name/pulseaudio


Thanks,
Jan

Lennert is surely around... but I think it might be good to get a few
motivated maintainers for the fedora package. (Folks who could triage
bugs, pull commits from upstream, etc). Especially since Lennart is
busy with systemd.

Any folks willing to step up? Lennart: any folks you trust to do this
or would be willing to help get up to speed?

I'd suppose if it's just one commit and is urgent, it would be a job
for a provenpackager, not a take over request.

This doesn't feel appropriate to me, since it's obviously a patch which
should go upstream if it goes anywhere. A provenpackager can't commit it
to upstream PA.

(note that Lennart doesn't check his redhat.com email much, he prefers
the poettering.net address).

Also think so.

Twinkle sound is choppy when using pulseaudio, the details are not important
here as I have not even filed it when the pulseaudio Bugs get ignored.

Done by Matej Cepl <mcepl@redhat.com>:

I wonder if the nonresponsive package maintainers policy should have a
provision for "ping maintainer on irc"

BTW I mailed him also (off-list) and got a reply on 10 Nov 2010 so I did not
try to skip any attempt.

Most (potentially) nonresponsive folks aren't even on IRC in the first
place.

(Lennart is, though. His IRC nick is mezcalero.)
