My project name is being used by a non active ppa

Asked by Tony Brijeski on 2011-03-27

I wanted to setup a ppa for remastersys to make it easier for folks to install remastersys in ubuntu. When I tried to setup the project it turns out someone named Alex registered my project name but has done nothing with it.

I am kindly asking that he be removed from the project and the name be freed up so I can create a ppa of remastersys.

Regards,

I am assigning this question to an admin to make you the maintainer of the project in Launchpad

But that will not necessarily help you achieve your goals. PPA (archives) are owned by users and teams. They are secure and often contain packages from more than one project to provide a primary project. Projects are shared by communities, they are not security and they often cannot provide all their dependencies. You create create your PPA now, or create a team and add a PPA to it.

Regardless of who Lp lists as the project maintainer, you can set the project's trunk branch at https://launchpad.net/remastersys/trunk. You can also create recipes that automatically build your branches into packages and deploy them to your PPA.

Adjusting series branch linkage is actually restricted to owner/driver/{registry,bazaar,rosetta,full}-admins. However, you only need that to assign a short alias name (like lp:remastersys) to a branch. Anyone can register a new code import at https://code.launchpad.net/remastersys/+new-import.

Hi Tony, you are now the maintainer for the project on launchpad:
