Re: 'straw' package appears to be orphaned



Hi!

As per https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=186731, the
Fedora Extras package of the Straw news reader is extremely old. The
maintainer, Colin Charles has seemed nonresponsive for about five months,
at least. I'm not sure what's going on since his blog is updated quite
regularly.

I'm not familiar with the organization of Fedora Extras, but can this
package be added the orphaned list? And, well, it would be cool if someone
stepped up to maintain the package :-)

I pinged bytee in #fedora-extras on this, here's his response:

[07:54:09] < thl> | bytee_, please read https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-extras-list/2006-August/msg00170.html
[09:18:44] <      bytee_> | thl: i will respond and fix that bug. sorry.
[09:19:04] < bytee_> | thl: my main problem was that the package required an update. and the update breaks the old database. i havent figured out a nice way to deal with it [09:19:32] < bytee_> | thl: i'm thinking that breaking it in itself might be the best way. because the straw package itself doesn't offfer a conversion tool
[09:23:19] <         thl> | bytee_, thx
[09:23:31] <         thl> | bytee_, gaim-guifications needs a update, too
[09:23:37] < thl> | bytee_, see https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-extras-list/2006-August/msg00166.html
[09:24:10] <      bytee_> | thl: i know that, i will do that next week.
[09:24:14] <      bytee_> | as does MagicPoint.
[09:24:26] <      bytee_> | thl: give me a week, i'm not home at the moment
[09:24:50] < bytee_> | thl: do you mind responding to the post for me? its not convenient to do email atm [09:26:58] < thl> | bytee_, shall I simply cut'n'paste this conversation?
[09:27:05] <      bytee_> | thl: sure, if you want.
[09:27:17] <      bytee_> | thl: i'll update it all next week when back.
