Why are just a few projects listed under https://launchpad.net/gnu if more gnu projects are registered

Asked by DNS on 2011-10-02

There are just a few projects listed under https://launchpad.net/gnu so i wonder if you can add other (already) registered GNU projects at lp to this page?

For example:

https://launchpad.net/aspell-project
https://launchpad.net/auctex
https://launchpad.net/autoconf
https://launchpad.net/autogen
https://launchpad.net/automake
https://launchpad.net/binutils
https://launchpad.net/bison
...

Or what is the reason that they are not listed under the GNU project?
I can help to find all, just tell me.

Hi,

It looks like you (or someone) has updated the gnu project to include many of the ones listed above. I assume you figured out how to do it and just handled it?

Let me know if you need more information.

i have forgot one important project: https://launchpad.net/glibc

I could not change Gnome because it is itself a project group, and we cannot nest at this time.

As you guessed, I could not add projects registered by other users, though I did a quick scan to see if I happened to have any necessary privileges via team membership. I did not.

Additionally, one of the projects you listed as being managed by registry administrators, but it is not: https://launchpad.net/gnubiff . I could not change it.

Everything else I did and doublechecked.

DNS (dns) said : #5

Thanks a lot.
Sorry about listing gnubiff wrongly.

I have found a few other GNU projects registered by registry admins:

https://launchpad.net/adns
https://launchpad.net/gnubash
https://launchpad.net/gperf
https://launchpad.net/ignuit
https://launchpad.net/libiconv
https://launchpad.net/libtasn1
https://launchpad.net/miscfiles
https://launchpad.net/uucp

Once again, can u please add those too?

Hi, I've changed the last batch over.

DNS (dns) said : #7

Thank you.
Now the page really looks much better, before this question it had only 9 projects listed :D

Please add also:
https://launchpad.net/gpaint

https://launchpad.net/texmacs
the maintainer of this project has deleted his lp account, maybe you can fix that? :)

I mailed every maintainer of the projects which arent maintained by Registry Admins.
Already some more have added their projects to the group.

For the record, these project groups are related to the GNU project:
(and can not be added, see Bug #294159)

https://launchpad.net/bazaar
https://launchpad.net/gnome
https://launchpad.net/gnumailman
https://launchpad.net/gnutelephony
https://launchpad.net/gnuenterprise-project

I've changed gpaint.

We're sorting this out. Should this be part of gnu too?

DNS (dns) said : #9

Thanks.

Yep, please add TeXmacs and also gengetopt (https://launchpad.net/gengetopt).

Gavin Panella (allenap) said : #10

All done :)
