Request to transfer ownership of xfce4-volumed-pulse project

Asked by Sean Davis on 2016-09-11

The xfce4-volumed-pulse project [1] has had a number of changes recently. Lionel is no longer maintaining the project. The project has moved back to upstream Xfce [2] and core developers have taken up the development mantle for this project. All project links on Launchpad are currently broken [3], [4].

I would like to request a transfer of ownership of the project to Xubuntu Developers [5] so that it can be maintained for the future. If this is not possible, can we make the following changes?

* Project Homepage: https://git.xfce.org/apps/xfce4-volumed-pulse/
* lp:xfce4-volumed-pulse updated to import from git://git.xfce.org/apps/xfce4-volumed-pulse

Have you contacted Lionel about transferring the Launchpad project to you? It's very uncommon for us to take over a personally owned project like this.

This question was expired because it remained in the 'Needs information' state without activity for the last 15 days.

I reached out to Lionel but have not heard a response. During my last correspondence with him and another person regarding the project back in April 2015, he offered up maintenance for the project.

"I don't use Xfce anymore these days, so I don't really maintain xfce4-volumed now. Feel free to take over the maintenance if you're
using it actively. You may want to get in touch with Xubuntu developers (cc'ed Sean Davis), as they also applied a patch to fix init issues (<https://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-branches/ubuntu/vivid/xfce4-volumed/vivid/view/head:/debian/patches/01_fork-before-gtk-init.patch>)."

Since I have some administrative powers on that page (not owner, but admin) I disabled the code and bug-tracking. However, it would still be nice if ownership could be transferred to us.

Also note that we have already released two more versions of xfce4-volumed-pulse over at git.xfce.org.

Hm, it looks like Lionel transferred the ownership to ~xubuntu-dev after you reached out to him. Both of you should have full privileges already.

Can you help with this problem?
