wishes to take over maintenance
- use Kepler for the method described above (team based)
This might involve moving some Kepler stuff over to LuaForge
It makes sense.
I have some reservations about this: The way I imagine it, the proposed
new community organization (and possibly the
graveyard/purgatory/spacejunk organization) would be managed the same
way as the projects in it (meaning at least two maintainers and a yearly
check for life signs). The responsibilities of those maintainers would
only be to create or move projects, and there would be two GitHub teams
per project (<project>-collaborators and <project>-owners) so that the
project maintainers can manage their committers on their own as much as
possible. Ideally, I'd also like that the maintainers of the community
organization and the graveyard organization are the same, because I
suspect there will be some project transfers between those two.
LuaForge is currently a GitHub user not an organization, so we can't
have multiple administrators there, and the Kepler project already has
existing projects and GitHub teams. (Also "LuaForge" is not really a
fitting name for a place for unmaintained projects!)
The good thing about reusing Kepler would be that we don't need a new
name which seems to be the only thing holding us back right now ...
@Hisham; No need to take my approach, but most of all; be pragmatic,
and make the change. This list has a bad reputation for consensus, so
waiting won't help :)
I would say that "this list has a reputation for _silent_ consensus".
And, yes, waiting won't help :-)
I would be glad to help. Count me in!
