(( the following post is a cross post of the forum post here -
Since making the previous post about retiring my AUR account, the following
occurred to me.
* I still like doing AUR work. But it's not something I can reliably
provide like before. So I'm not sure how to handle being able to do it on
the sidelines without making myself seem unavailable on purpose.
* People might not be willing to pick up a package after it's been orphaned
due to not knowing the maintenance problems I've had with some packages in
* Some packages might not be used enough to know when the sources are
broken, thus needing updating.
* Some packages required maintenance from upstream developers due to no one
else being available to maintain it.
So I've compiled a list of packages that need co-maintainers, those that
I've kept due to low maintenance time, and those that are potentially
orphanable due to maintenance circumstances. This list can be found here.
Is there anything else I should do to make it easier for future maintainers
to help ease their workload?
