Re: new maintainter process [was: Re: Orphaning my packages]


I have started an investigation on what holds each application
(All of you that have waited for longer than about one and a half
month should have recieved a personal mail. That took some time)
so if anyone know anything about a specific application and what
holds it, then please let me know.

I have recieved replies from a couple of people now but I'm waiting
for more information before I make a report to the DAM.

Please use a clear subject so I know how to sort your messages.
I want clear information about everything that can hold back each
individual application so that can be sorted out in a nice way.

PS. DAM: I hope you do not mind if I do this work for you. :)
