I would be very pleased to maintain this package:

> app-doc/repodoc

I am not an ebuild developer, I belong to the Spanish
translation team (to which I joined recently). One of
our former leads (yoswink) maintained this package, it
is a pity to abandon it.
I would like to maintain gentoo packages in the future,
so I think this is a good start point.
Currently I am reading the Developers Guide, to know
how the gentoo stuff works.

Is there any chance I can maintain this package?. What do
I have to do?.

Thanks.

You could provide unified patches to the ebuilds to fix the four
outstanding bugs[1] with the package. Someone should CC themselves on
those bugs who has commit access for the thing to work, of course.
Maybe the live (-9999) ebuild could use some work too.

Thank you very much for pointing me in the right direction.
I'll begin to work in those bugs.

Cheers.

I can be your proxy commmiter for this one, perhaps a starting
point is to update the home page[2] of this package; actually I don't
know if it is still developed.

Ping me when you have some news

Yeah, kde herd is on it.

We can also assimilate this one if needed.

^^ I'll take these


media-video/smplayer

^^ The Qt team will take care of this. I might add myself as a
maintainter to give it some extra attention, we'll see.

Thank you for your help in trying to get the app-doc/repodoc package
back to live :-)

I've found some information on this package:

1. I've contacted Fernando Pereda (ferdy), one of the authors of
repodoc. He told me (as expected) that this package is no longer
maintained. He recommends to find out if the translatos are
currently using this package (seems very reasonable).
Besides, the package is not very secure, since it allows to run
commands by using a specially modify doc.
It is slow and the technologies used (bash and sed) are not the
proper ones to manage XML.

2. I've pinged the gentoo-translators maillist [1] to find
translators who are using this package. I've got only one
negative answer in a week or so.

3. I've taken a look at the package's unresolved bugs:
197617 - Seems tough to fix, according to yoswink and neysx
comments.
297946 - I've posted a comment [2] in this bug. No answer at
the moment.
297947 - Haven't check yet.
299753 - Seems easy to fix.

So, IMO you can mark it for removal.

Regards.
