Default Packages up for grabs -- xmerlin, yoswink, chtekk, omp, tantive, mueli, bluebird, hncaldwell, caleb

As I'm retiring, the following packages I maintained need someone else
to look after them:

media-video/avidemux - video and qt herds (this one needs a version bump)
media-video/smplayer - qt and video herds
x11-themes/haematite-xcursors - desktop-misc herd
x11-themes/obsidian-xcursors - ,,
x11-themes/pearlgrey-xcursors - ,,
x11-wm/openbox - hwoarang?, lxde herd, desktop-wm herd
app-misc/vifm <-- this is now maintainer-needed!
app-text/wgetpaste <-- this is now maintainer-needed!

Also, my proxy-maintainers will need new contacts:
x11-wm/echinus - anyone from desktop-wm still active?
dev-php/roadsend-php - anyone from php?

I hope I didn't forget anything.

Cheers,
Ben

I forgot to add:

app-text/poppler - reavertm?, now assigned to kde herd, and printing
herd which is basically dead
app-text/poppler-data - assigned to dead printing herd and loki_val
who is on extended devaway
dev-python/python-poppler - taken over by python herd

Default Packages up for grabs -- xmerlin, yoswink, chtekk, omp, tantive, mueli, bluebird, hncaldwell, caleb

I guess I should have done a proper grep on the tree before my first
message. I missed a few more that are now up for grabs:

media-sound/ncmpcpp - tanderson?, sound herd
app-text/convertlit
app-admin/makepasswd
app-backup/rsnapshot - proxy maintainer needs new contact
app-cdr/recorder - media-optical herd
app-laptop/lenovo-sl-laptop
dev-php5/symfony - proxy maintainer needs new contact
media-sound/wavegain - sound herd
net-misc/wput
www-client/dillo - desktop-misc herd, but could use dedicated
maintainer (also for fltk:2)
x11-themes/pekwm-themes-hewphoria - proxy maintainer (same as for
echinus) needs new contact (xarthisius?)

Cheers,
Ben

Thank you very much for pointing me in the right direction.

I'll begin to work in those bugs.



Cheers.



Ok, then I won't mask this package for removal ( I was about to do it right now when I�accidentally remembered this thread ) for now. If the bugs are still unresolved after 30 days I will have to mask it for removal. In the meantime, if you have working patches for the repodoc bugs [1], I can commit them for you and proxy this package for you until you gain tree access

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.
