[RFC] Needs New Maintainer: yad
Open, HighPublic

Description

Repo: R3292 yad
Homepage: https://github.com/v1cont/yad/

As part of a sweeping effort I am doing to reduce outdated package count, begin regularly enforcing maintainership file inclusion in old(er) repos, and increase the likelihood of a package having a maintainer (should it be required, outside of those being handled by Core Team and Global Maintainers), this task is being created to effectively "notify" the current maintainer of the package that it needs to be updated or modified to indicate its maintainership and ensure it is regularly maintained. In the event there is no specific maintainer, either one may be specified that has regularly updated it in the past, or this task shall also be considered an RFC for a new maintainer.

During the patch submission process, the MAINTAINERS.md file should be included if it is not already, and have the following content (replace REPLACEME with the correct value):

This file is used to indicate responsibility for the maintenance of this package. Individuals on this list should be the sole modifiers of the package, excluding cases where the Solus Team may need to perform necessary rebuilds, upgrades, or security fixes. This list should not be used for any direct contact usage. If you believe this package requires a package update, follow documentation from https://getsol.us/articles/packaging/request-a-package-update/en/. In the event this package no longer becomes sufficiently maintained, Core Team reserves the right to request a new maintainer or remove this package from the repository.

- REPLACEME FIRST NAME(S) LAST NAME(S)
  - IRC: REPLACEME
  - Email: REPLACEME

Unless the updating of the package or claiming of maintainership is being blocked by other items in the stack, 30 days shall be provided to update the package or claim maintainership. Should the package not see an update by either the maintainer or an individual volunteering to become the maintainer, Core Team reserves the right to remove it from the repository. Please note that simply volunteering for maintainership without providing a patch is not an accepted "solution" to resolving this task or preventing deprecation.

Event Timeline

Herald triaged this task as High priority. · View Herald TranscriptTue, Nov 10, 7:50 PM

This package has been marked by a Core Team member for planned deprecation. In this case, Planned Deprecation means that this package will be removed from our repository in the event no individual comes forward to maintain this package. Such Planned Deprecation will occur no less than 30 days from the adding of this tag.

If you wish to become the dedicated package maintainer for this package, please bear in mind that this package has been marked as a result of being either poorly integrated or maintained. If you are intent on becoming the maintainer for this package, please do so with:

  1. The expectation that you will be responsible for actively maintaining and integrating this package into the rest of the Solus software stack.
  2. The expectation that you will need to respond to issues related to this package in a timely manner.
  3. The expectation that you will be or already are actively using this package as part of your workflow, whether on a irregular or regular basis.

In the event you wish to become a package maintainer for this, please comment that you will be stepping forward to do so. This way, a Core Team member, or a member of the Triage Team, can remove the Planned Deprecation tag.
