- Subject: Looking for maintainer for RPMs

Since switching to Debian a few months ago, I can now rely on the
excellent work of Daniel Silverstone, and no longer need my Lua RPMs. This
means the incentive to maintain them is waning.
Since the Lua RPMs still account for most of the downloaded bytes from my
website, it seems there are users out there, and I'm sure any new
maintainer's efforts would be appreciated.
I see two possible routes to take. In the past, I always used RedHat and
then Fedora Core. The RPMs were not deliberately tied to RH, but I didn't
test them on other distros. If someone who uses Fedora would like to merge
the RPMs into the Fedora project, that would be great. (Fedora already has
Lua, but the spec file is not as refined; I have all of its improvements,
but it doesn't have mine.) Alternatively, the RPM could be made more
distro-neutral. (Or again, others might like to maintain versions for
SuSE, Mandrake or whatever.
Applications from prospective maintainers are welcomed (just drop me an
email); no particular RPM expertise is required; familiarity with building
Lua on Linux is more important. (Most of the good things about this RPM
are hints taken from people more expert than myself!)
I would like to get the RPMs off my plate by the end of the month, but if
no-one steps up to maintain them I'll continue to supply them while
they're still in demand.
