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/orbit2/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/perl … indicator/
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

Six of the packages had no other dependencies as well, so I have filed a deletion request and they have been deleted, I have updated the above list accordingly.

Re: Some packages search for a new caring maintainer

Continuing on here from our small mailing list chat: I am down to comaintain these packages. As of the time of this writing, the packages seem to build and install properly.

Sorry that took a few days; needed to make sure that I tested the state of these things before blindly agreeing. Looks pretty good to me.

My username on this forum is the same as my AUR username: https://aur.archlinux.org/account/kevr

I am available on IRC in #archlinux-offtopic or #archlinux-aur if you wish to chat more directly. You can also send an email to the mail listed on my AUR account; it is monitored and used.

Again, thanks for your quick reply on aur-general.
