Ownership of gnome-paint

Asked by Dominik on 2017-10-31

I would like to take ownership of gnome-paint project. Unfortunately project owner/admin is no longer active and all my previous attempts to contact him have ended without success. Despite my still hope for his return, it is a very inconvenient situation to maintain a project as a sole team member but without full rights. I currently work with Debian maintainer to apply patches developed there.

Thank you for your support. Let's wait for one of the administrators to show up.

The project's maintainer is now ~gnome-paint-developers, which should give you sufficient access to it.

Dominik (dominikdanelski) said : #4

Thank you, however the owner of gnome-paint Developers is still Rogério Ferro. I can either add a new group and give it maintainer rights to gnome-paint or take control of current dev team.

Dominik (dominikdanelski) said : #5

Otherwise I will not be able to add new project members like https://launchpad.net/~nandakumar96 who has been waiting for it for over three years but is still interested.

I hope you understand that we have to be careful about reassigning team ownership without explicit consent, but I understand that there may be a problem here if the original administrator is now inactive. I've sent a mail CCed to you with a timeout of one week; if we don't hear back in that time we'll make you an additional administrator.

Any follow-up?

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

Colin Watson (cjwatson) said : #9

I got no response from Rogério Ferro either, so we've promoted Dominik to be an administrator of ~gnome-paint-developers.

Thanks. I hope this will make the project alive again.

Rogério Ferro wrote me some time ago that currently he has not enough time to maintain the project, but I hope he will be able to come back soon.
