Open ITP without apparent work on it
Bug #269329 is an ITP for Open Xchange - the Suse server gone GPL. It's
open since 31 Aug 2004, with a couple of people asking whether the
original submitter is intending to release, but without any actual work
My question is this - if I package the software myself, can I just
submit it and close the bug? Or is it considered rude to just close
someone else's ITP?
I don't mind working on it, with the full risk of the original packager
submitting a package before I manage to find a sponsore to mine etc.
What I don't want happening, though, is that I'll work on it, submit and
package, and then be told that this package cannot go in because someone
else owns the ITP.
So what's the procedure?
