This is specifically in regards to the 'proftpd' package maintained by
Matthias Saou. Anyone know if he's around?
I'm interested in becoming a co-maintainer for this package. I haven't
tried recently to contact Matthias (I will), but past attempts have not
been answered and quite a few proftpd bugs are sitting open -- there
hasn't been an update to the package for a long time. I don't
necessarily want to become the sole maintainer (although maybe), but
have the following questions I wasn't able to easily find the answers
to on the wiki:
- How can I see who currently are maintainers and comaintainers for a
- Is there a process to become a co-maintainer of a package when the
primary maintainer is absent?
- As a 'provenpackager' would it be acceptable for me to push a new
release of proftpd if I have commit access even though I'm not
officially a maintainer?
