Re: Changing maintainer for package in mentors
Initially, Hugues Morrisset was entered as Maintainer and Ben Wiederhake
(me) as Uploader in debian/rules. However, Hugues has gone inactive and
agreed that I take the lead in debianizing telegram-purple. But now
mentors won't let me do anything, because I'm not the maintainer in the
eyes of the system.
yes, this is a known issue, because e.g. you can't remove the package,
but I guess it is a "non-issue"
because the package content should be correct anyway.
The package *content* is correct, true. But not the metadata!
For the record, in case someone has the same issue again:
Ask the "Maintainer" (in my case: Hugues Morrisset) to delete the
package, wait a minute, and upload it again from the right account. This
seems to reset all metadata in mentors.
