Some packages search for a new caring maintainer

Hi guys,

I have been maintaining a number of Gnome2/Gtk2/Perl related packages because they were dependencies of Shutter which I am using frequently and also maintaining its package. Recently Shutter dropped all its Gnome2 and Gtk2 dependencies, so I don't use the corresponding packages any more and would like to pass them to somebodye else. Some of the packages require no maintainance at all because there are no updates from upstream, some need a bump after Perl updates (or supporting users who are not familiar with rebuilding Perl packages after Perl updates).

Here is the list of packages:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libgnomeui/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libbonobo/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libbonoboui/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gnome-perl/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gnome-vfs-perl/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gnomecanvas-perl/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libgnomecanvas/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/perl-gtk2-imageview/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/perl-goo-canvas/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/perl-mime-detect/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/perl-glib-io/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/orbit2/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/perl … indicator/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/perl-net-dbus-glib/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/perl … ignatures/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libgnome/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libgnome-data/

Some of them might even be deleted since no other package depends on them.

All the best,
PhotonX

The very worst thing you can do with free software is to download it, see that it doesn't work for some reason, leave it, and tell your friends that it doesn't work.  -  Tuomas Lukka
