Axiom project maintenance

Asked by daly on 2008-12-16

I'm Tim Daly, the Axiom lead developer.

I just discovered Launchpad and I find there is a very old copy of Axiom posted here.
Axiom is released every 2 months (Nov 2008 was last release) but the project listed
here is from 2005. (See http://axiom-developer.org which is the official website)

Camm Maquire (the GCL maintainer) is listed as the project lead but he is not
(I know Camm).

I'd like to bring this project under the rest of Axiom's maintenance and use Launchpad
as the Axiom bug list. How can I become the maintainer?

Hi Tim,

It appears the Launchpad maintainer is actually Bill Page. Could you please contact him and ask him to turn maintainership over to you? Let us know the outcome, and we can take it from there.

Since you're already dealing with this issue in #54731 I propose closing this question.

Bill,

I'm trying to manage outstanding bug requests about the debian Axiom package
from November 2005.

I'd like you to respond to this email and agree to turn the
maintainership of the Axiom mailing list on Launchpad over to me.

Thanks,
Tim

Tim,

I certainly agree however I have completely lost track of how I ever
became associated with LaunchPad. I do not recall having done anything
with this for at least two years. Any help you can give me regarding
how to "turn maintainership over to you" would be greatly appreciated.

Bill.

Ok. I managed to log in and update my email address. Then I tried to
change maintainer from "Bill Page" to "daly" but for some reason the
result was that the project is now apparently maintained by someone
named "vgan" which happens to have daly@... as their email. I don't
really understand any of this, so I hope they can straighten things
out. If I can help and not cause any more problems, just let me know.

Can someone at Launchpad please correct this problem?
I'd like to be able to respond to the Axiom bug list.
I've gotten the requested permission from Bill Page, the prior maintainer

There were bugs listed for the Axiom computer algebra project.
They appear to have disappeared. Why? -- Tim Daly

Celso Providelo (cprov) said : #9

Tim,

I can't find any indication that there were any bug filed in this project. Anyway, they might have been reassigned.

If you have concrete reference to any bug, please let us know, but do that as a new question so we can trace incidents properly.

Thanks
