The technical committee was asked in #750135 to address who would maintain the Aptitude project. ==== RESOLUTION ==== Background/Rationale: 1. In #750135, the Technical Committee was asked by Manuel Fernandez Montecelo who should be the maintainer of the Aptitude project. Manuel Fernandez Montecelo had been actively committing until his commit access was removed by Daniel Hartwig. Manuel Fernandez Montecelo and Daniel Hartwig took over development of Aptitude in 2011 with the support of Christian Perrier, an admin for the Aptitude alioth project. There was friction between Manuel Fernandez Montecelo and Daniel Hartwig, which eventually resulted in Manuel Fernandez Montecelo's commit access being revoked by Daniel Hartwig. Since then, Daniel Hartwig has become inactive, and did not comment on the issue when requested by the Technical Committee. 2. During the discussion of this issue, Christian Perrier proposed that he and Axel Beckert could watch the social aspects of Aptitude development and restore Manuel Fernandez Montecelo's commit access. Christian still has administrative rights and believes he has the technical power to implement his proposal, but requested the advice of the technical committee before doing so. Using the power of the technical committee to provide advice (§6.1.5): 1. The Technical Committee agrees that Christian has the power to implement his proposal and encourages him to do so. 2. We hope that Christian and Axel will work to manage the social aspects of the Aptitude project, working to recruit new developers, building a stronger Aptitude development community, and establishing policies and procedures that promote a collaborative team. 3. We thank Manuel Fernandez Montecelo for bringing this matter to our attention and apologize for our delay in resolving this matter. ==== END OF RESOLUTION ==== Please see http://bugs.debian.org/750135 for discussion of this bug.
