Description Alick Zhao 2018-01-02 00:14:28 EST
Description of problem:

Several packages maintained by cwickert have not been updated for a while to the latest upstream release. Those include volumeicon, sakura, termit (and possibly others). In particular, volumeicon needs to be updated to fix regular crashes:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1483085

As per https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Policy_for_nonresponsive_package_maintainers, I am filing this bug to see if cwickert is still actively maintaining packages.

@cwickert, please respond asap if you see the bug report. Thanks.
Comment 1 Alick Zhao 2018-01-12 01:56:06 EST
It's been over a week and this is the second request for response.
Comment 2 Alick Zhao 2018-01-19 22:52:39 EST
It's been over two weeks since the bug was created.
Comment 3 Christoph Wickert 2018-01-23 08:06:40 EST
Sorry for the late response.

I hereby confirm I am unable to look after my packages and am looking for new maintainers for all of them. Please advise the next steps.
Comment 4 Raphael Groner 2018-01-23 15:16:38 EST
Christoph, thanks for your great contribution to Fedora so far.

I could take volumeicon to not let it die. Upstream seems to be still alive: Latest commit on GitHub is from Octobre 2017 and a new release was requested.

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2018-02-20 10:28:46 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.
Comment 6 Christoph Wickert 2018-02-21 03:25:27 EST
I am upgrading this bug to rawhide to prevent it from being closed again.

I am officially looking for new maintainers for all of my packages. If you want one, contact me.

Please follow the official guideline for nonresponsive maintainer:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Policy_for_nonresponsive_package_maintainers

Flaming in this (general) bug won't help anybody.
Comment 14 Alick Zhao 2018-04-08 18:53:18 EDT
I see no flaming in this bug. I was editing the bug to make sure it is not closed accidentally.

The process has been followed, to a point where Christoph is responsive and wants interested folks to take over his packages:
