Up for adoption: Xiph.org and OpenEXR packages


(pkg-multimedia-maintainers and pkg-phototools-devel Bcc'ed).

I have several packages (all libraries except one) I can no longer take
proper care of, and I'd appreciate if somebody/group who knows how to
maintain a library would step up and take them.

They come in two groups:

1. Xiph.org packages

  * libao
  * libogg
  * libspiff
  * libtheora
  * libvorbis
  * uriparser
  * vorbis-tools

I initiated some time ago a pkg-xiph project on Alioth to take care of
all these packages. For some time I've been unable to work on them, and
the person who has been doing all of the work since then has recently
stepped down as well.

Maybe pkg-multimedia would like/could take care of them? Or anybody else
wants to adopt the pkg-xiph project? (I'm CC'ing Peter Samuelson, who
expressed interest at some point.)

2. OpenEXR packages

  * openexr
  * ilmbase

These two library packages I RFA'ed quite some time ago (#494877 and
#494878), but the person who expressed initial interest won't have time
any time soon, and has indicated it's okay to search for somebody else.

I have no idea if these would be appropriate for the pkg-phototools
group, but I guess it's worth a try. I'm also CC'ing the maintainer of
openexr-tools, Pino Toscano, in case he has particular interest in
OpenEXR packages.

I'll file RFA bugs in a week if this thread doesn't succeed, and fix RC
bugs during that period. If they are many, at some point I will have to 
orphan them.

Many thanks in advance,
