Bug#984462: RFH: open-build-service

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-Cc: debian-devel@lists.debian.org, Andrew Lee (李健秋) <ajqlee@debian.org>, Debian Ruby Extras Maintainers <pkg-ruby-extras-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org>


While I don’t work on the OBS package in Debian, I know about the state
of the package in Debian right now: the team, and most notably the main
maintainer, Andrew Lee, need help to maintain this package, as it
requires a lot of work due to a combination of Ruby / Ruby on Rails,
Perl and shell bits. Ruby parts specifically is a pain point, since
there’s a lot of gems this package depends on and updating one or
multiple of them can break OBS in ways the upstream didn’t think about.

The package has already missed Buster and Bullseye, and if the situation
doesn’t improve, it may result in a removal at some point.

Unfortunately, I lack necessary knowledge of the Ruby ecosystem to be
able to meaningfully help myself, but this package needs more people to
work on it, so if you can help, please consider doing so.
