I'm willing to help maintain them in EPEL but I don't want to be sole
maintainer of a dozen packages, and I would prefer to have a
co-maintainer. There's a real good possibility I won't install
RHEL/CentOS 6 when it ships - I use to like running latest greatest but
now Linux is good enough that I prefer not to mess with what works. So I
don't want to be in a situation where I take some on and then end up
having to orphan because I'm not running relevent versions of the OS.
But any help I can provide, I'm more than willing to. I even would
consider maintaining a few branches solo if there were other people
maintaining some of the others.
Sure. I can co-maintain the packages.
also unrelated - someone really should branch and maintain alpine. EL
often used on servers that people often access via remote shell, and
pine was "the standard" mail client for those scenarios. I bet alpine
will be in RHEL 6 anyway, but it should be EPEL branched for 5 (it
builds and works just fine i386/x86_64)
Alpine is already in EPEL 5 testing repository. It will be moved to EPEL
5 within a couple of days.
