Packages needing a new maintainer
As I am moving to other challenges, I need to lighten my package load.
This means that the following packages need a new maintainer.
See below the package entries for generic notes and procedures. If you
want to take one of these, be sure to read the bottom of this message!
I will orphan these (assign to Q&A group) if there are no takers:
mmorph - a two-level morphology implementation
Upstream is very unresponsive but still alive. There is
another Linux port that should be investigated. There is
one outstanding bug that I have not been able to resolve
(possibly requires signing an NDA on a dataset to reproduce,
possibly not our bug at all).
malaga - a natural-language grammar package
Infrequent releases, upstream responds sometimes with months
long delays but still responds. No outstanding bugs.
There is a new upstream release.
poster - make big posters out of PS files
Simple package, which I don't use. No bug reports,
quiet (but responsive) upstream.
I will continue maintaining these even if there are no takers:
hugs, hugs-doc - a Haskell 98 implementation (Classic Hugs)
This used to be a not so simple package, but since Classic
Hugs development is now in bugfix-only-mode, it should be an
Upstream is working on the hugs/ghc merger (STG Hugs) which
should be packaged as part of the GHC source package when it
green-card - a Haskell foreign-function interface preprocessor
If you are taking hugs, you should consider this one too.
Also if you are the GHC maintainer :-)
This one requires work: you should add support for the GHC
compiler, and (once it's packaged) for STG Hugs.
Upstream releases are infrequent, but upstream is responsive.
ctklight - a lightweight compiler writer's toolkit for Haskell
This is a simple package, but you should be interested in
compiler-writing and/or Haskell. No outstanding bugs.
Simple packages, no bugs, rare upstream releases:
mixal - implementation of Knuth's MIX
nase-a60 - Algol 60 implementation
clif - a C interpreter
rosegarden - an integrated music editor
Many bugs. Upstream is in an unenthusiastic bugfix mode for
this one, they are working on a full rewrite.
All of my packages use a build system of my own design. Depending on
their age, they use different versions of that build system. This means
that they may need some accustoming to. I won't kill you if you convert
those you take into debhelper, though. (But don't break them!:-)
If you want to take one or more of these packages, let me know. I may
wait for a few days to respond, to gather more takers. If there are
more than one taker, I (or the takers together) will choose one to
take the package. If I give you one of these packages, I expect you to
make an upload claiming the package ASAP. Don't let anything (including
debhelperization and other such things) delay that upload.
I will prefer registered developers over sponsored prospective developers.
I will not give any of these packages to prospective developers without
a sponsor (that is: I will not sponsor anyone, or wait for someone to
get a sponsor).
