I would like to add to Ankur's point: while I understand that many of us are doing
Fedora work voluntarily and the expectations should be set accordingly, I believe we
should be open to accept help when we realise that we cannot realistically commit enough
time to the project. In case of asio, I have contacted you back in 2018 . The pull
request I have filed  has been opened since.
The situation with asio right now is that Fedora with its asio-1.10.8 is not only behind
arch and gentoo (both at 1.14.0), but also behind debian buster (at 1.12.2). Resiprocate,
which is what was holding back asio update, has been retired due to FTBFS, then unorphaned
at your request, and then retired again after being orphaned for 6+ weeks . There has
not been a successful build of resiprocate since 2016 .
Again, I perfectly understand that you have a backlog and that updating asio is not on
top on your priority list. Being sceptical about co-maintainership offers seems
counter-productive though, as there are things which need fixing and other people willing
to step in.
I would like to suggest that given our community and its modus
operandi, I think it would be unfair to automatically be suspicious of
the work fellow packagers are trying to do to help you. But, if it
helps, I'd be willing to assist with the asio package. Hopefully, my
track record speaks for itself, in terms of maintaining packages in
Fedora and contributing to various aspects of the Project. I also
sponsored Dakota (the OP who asked you about asio), and I have been
mentoring him on how to interact with the larger Fedora community and
I was the one who encouraged him to reach out to you on asio for EPEL
If you feel you are no longer able to give it the attention it needs,
I would respectfully request you transfer the ownership to Dakota, who
is interested in maintaining the package. If you have some concern
with him maintaining it, feel free to transfer the package to me
instead. Failing that, please just orphan the package so someone can
take care of it in your stead.
Thanks in advance, and thank you for being a member of the Fedora community.
