I no longer support RHEL.
Comment 2 Stephen John Smoogen 2018-11-06 21:17:08 UTC
Leigh, if you no longer wish to support this package in RHEL or CentOS, please retire the package from EPEL so it can be removed from the repository

(In reply to Stephen John Smoogen from comment #2) > Leigh, if you no longer wish to support this package in RHEL or CentOS, > please retire the package from EPEL so it can be removed from the repository I've run this for the following epel7 packages (fedpkg retire 'Not enough time to maintain'). cinnamon cinnamon-control-center cinnamon-desktop cinnamon-menus cinnamon-screensaver cinnamon-session cinnamon-settings-daemon cinnamon-translations cjs mintlocale mint-themes mint-x-icons mint-y-icons muffin nemo nemo-extensions python-xapp tint2 xapps xed xreader Is that all that is required as I'm clueless to the process since pkgdb was retired. The notes for the new infra are totally lacking IMO.

This was reassigned to Alternative GTK desktop environments. I'll reopen for now to see if someone there is interested in maintaining for RHEL.

Comment 7 Pat Riehecky 2018-11-28 18:47:43 UTC
I'd be willing to maintain these and an EPEL7 branch of caribou. FAS account name: jcpunk Can I be granted the relevant rights?
Comment 8 Steve Cleveland 2019-04-04 20:55:47 UTC
Any updates on this? I would love to see Cinnamon continue to be supported in EPEL. I have a ton of users using it. jcpunk appears to have volunteered to maintain it.
Comment 9 Stephen John Smoogen 2019-04-04 21:04:18 UTC
The packages have been in epel-testing but no one seems to be actually testing them and giving jcpunk the karma so they can be pushed.
