Abandoned project "sssd"

Asked by David Ward on 2020-06-05

The Launchpad project "sssd" (https://launchpad.net/sssd) has been abandoned since shortly after it was registered in 2009.

I contacted the user who registered the project in Launchpad, but did not receive a response after 7 days. He has never contributed to the upstream source code, according to multiple searches of the commit history using 'git log --author'. It also appears that he has not contributed to any project hosted on Launchpad in over 5 years.

Currently, the project is misconfigured:
 * the home page is a broken link; it should be https://sssd.io/
 * the upstream code import (lp:sssd) is broken. This should be a Git repository (not Bazaar), and it should point to https://github.com/SSSD/sssd.git
 * the project description on Launchpad was taken from the upstream home page above, which has been changed slightly to the following:

"SSSD is a system daemon. Its primary function is to provide access to local or remote identity and authentication resources through a common framework that can provide caching and offline support to the system. It provides several interfaces, including NSS and PAM modules or a D-Bus interface"

Can you please make these changes to this Launchpad project?

I am not a maintainer of the upstream SSSD project. Can the ownership/maintainer information of this project be changed to either the Registry Administrators — or perhaps to the ~sssd team account (https://launchpad.net/~sssd) which is owned by the active maintainer of the sssd package in Debian/Ubuntu?

Thank you!

Thanks - I've requested a transfer to ~registry (internal reference: https://portal.admin.canonical.com/C126257/) and we'll update here as things progress

All those changes should now be made - thanks!

Can the old VCS imports branch be deleted?
https://code.launchpad.net/~vcs-imports/sssd/trunk

This is still set as the mainline branch for the "trunk" series in the sssd project (https://launchpad.net/sssd/trunk).

Hi,

We can't delete the branch without a fair amount of work as it shares revisions with another branch. I have however cleared the mainline branch for you, which is hopefully sufficient for what you need to do.
Let us know if there's anything else.

Thanks,
Tom
