Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 164788
Upstream has vanished
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:19 EST
vsftpd is maintained by a single person. That person doesn't reply anymore.
Upstream has vanished.
I sent a patch to firstname.lastname@example.org on 2005-06-15 and I never received
any reply. I resent the patch on 2005-07-29 and it bounced.
Will Red Hat assume maintainership of vsftpd?
I don't think it vanished, I had some email exchange with Chris recently (and
he's rather busy person). Check the new vsftpd forum
(http://vsftpd.etud-orleans.fr/) for submitting patches or if patch fixies some
specific bug, please open new bugzilla for it and attach your patch.
Just for the record, I've resent my patch. If it bounces again I'll submit it
I also tried http://vsftpd.etud-orleans.fr/. I'm probably too stupid to figure
out on which button I should click to access the forum, so if you could tell
me that would be much appreciated.
True that to forum seems to be under some constraction. Anyway, just got email
from Chris about another issue so beleive me that the upstream - this
one-man-show - is still alive (as I understand, he's on vacation now, away from
his home computer). As I said, if this patch fixies a bug, submit it here.
