Default Orphaning my Packages (or: RIP, Fedora!)

Brandon Holbrook a écrit :


php-json -- An extremely fast PHP extension for JSON
php-pear-Mail-Mime -- Classes to create and decode mime messages
php-pear-Mail-mimeDecode -- transcodes mime messages
php-pear-Net-Sieve -- Communication with timsieved
php-pecl-Fileinfo -- Fileinfo is a PHP extension that wraps the libmagic
library

php-shout -- PHP module for communicating with Icecast servers


I can take ownership of this php related package (as/with a co-maintener
if someone else want)

Contrary to your statement, I believe our number of users is growing.
At any rate, we wish you well.

It's difficult to get a handle on user numbers. We keep finding more
and more ways to give people live images we can't track because they
aren't hitting or mirrormanager looking for updates.

But our contributor numbers are definitely going up. We need to
start trying to identifying active/wayward/inactive/lost contributors
to get a better idea of our retention rate over some timescale. Not
everyone who leaves the project does it with this much...flare.
There's probably some critical window of time where new contributors
can show up and slip away. ..but if we keep them engaged beyond that
time period the retention percentage goes up. But that's just me
guessing.

I'll take over maradns if there's no objections.

Off late There are more contributors joinig fedora which is excellent
.I feel one area that we could improve on is the statistics as you
mentioned about fedora contributors and also feedback to contributors
which would help the contributors to get to know that their efforts
are being counted and monitored too. This would help them to get even
more motivated and helps in reducing the attrition rates


Cheers

I'm all ears as to what you think is appropriate feedback.

I will take eclipse-phpeclipse, since I'm already maintaining one
other eclipse plugin I don't think it will be too much hassle.
