I might consider this.
I can very well understand your motivation and I firmly believe
that they are in good faith, but I can't help the feeling that you
are somewhat offloading the package. This is fine in and as of
itself, but it would be better to officially do so rather than
I can asure you that I will not just put the "burden" of maintenance
to somebody else. My main motivations are:
1) I'm convinced that every package should be team maintained while
on the other hand I hate anonymous teams where actually nobody
really cares. So I keep my name as Uploader and I *will* care
for the package - but enable others to work on it as well. I
learned that simply orphaning a package jut puts burden on
QA group and I do not intend to orphan the package (because I
like it ;-)).
2) I want to learn git and I just need a real example to work on
it. So do ot underestimate my ignorance in adopting new tools -
*this* might be the real burden for pkg-games group to teach me
git to not mess up your repository. ;-)
1) keep package
I do not orphan it as I said - I just want to find a proper repository
for maintenance. As I said - I might use collab-meint otherwise.
2) OTA package with Debian Games taking over
If there is somebody of the team really interested he could add his
name in Uploaders.
3) join Debian Games
I do not intend to spend more time on games than I do now (which is
maintenance of xteddy and fortunes-de, perhaps sometimes testing
experimental wesnoth packages, but only in holidays). I don't like
to be a "formal" member of a team and doing basically nothing.
PS: If you do not intend to fix #370822 why do you need
DM-Upload? Not questioning this, just curious.
I don't see any relation between fixing a specific bug and DM-Upload.
I just wanted to enable Debian Maintainers to upload xteddy (we always
set "DM-Upload: yes" in Debian Med because we have good experiences with
DMs. Could you please more verbose why you see a connection between
a specific bug and this field?
