Default About unresolved bugs assigned to voip for ages

Hello

I am noticing for a long time that bugs related with ekiga, opal,
yate... are completely unattended by voip team for years. If nobody from
that team is willing to maintain them, please move them to
maintainer-needed to, at least, reflect reality.

Thanks

I have the impression the herd doesn't have any active developers.

Does voip herd belong to any project, is there a leader? Can you guys
get together and decide who is doing what? And then remove inactive
devs from the herd, and put unmaintained packages up for grabs /
assign to maintainer-needed?

That would make things more transparent and maybe get some movement in
open bugs.

Yes, that would be the right thing to do as now there are a lot of
packages that are like in a "limbo"

Any news here? I can move that packages to maintainer-needed if you send
me the list of packages you don't want to maintain. Also, maybe
telepathy stuff could be moved to its own herd (that is basically gnome
team + tester... or maybe tester could join gnome team )

I'd gladly take maintainership of opal and ekiga, if nobody wants them.

Would be nice as they need a lot of bumps and pending work
