Re: Orphaned packages looking for new maintainers

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


So finally plunging into learning how to package, so at some point I
should be able to help.

That said, I think quality over quantity might be a good goal to have
in trying to keep this little area of Fedora alive.

I am guessing they both were created, and then ignored, which isn't
doing anyone any good.  

I also suspect these days most people just use Google to either find
sites, or find a background they like.

So I agree, just let them disappear.

New developer/same developer different host? - appears to have a new
site at with a release 2
years ago.

That said, doesn't interest me and appears to be quice niche so may
not be worth the effort to keep.

Don't use Gnome, so of no interest to me.

A look at the source shows it hasn't been updated since 2001.

This one hasn't been updated since 2009, and relies on Motif which
could be a problem in the future anyway.
