I've been ignoring that package for well over a year, and will continue to
ignore it.  It was assigned to me by someone else in a long-ago bombing run.

Comment 4 Gianluca Sforna 2007-02-01 08:57:14 UTC
Cool... I don't think anyone foreseen such a possibility.

So, should we use the orphaning procedure or what?

Comment 5 Jeff Garzik 2007-02-01 10:00:42 UTC
That's as good an idea as any, I suppose.

The Extras community is probably far better suited to maintaining
{xfs,reiserfs,jfs}utils packages than a Red Hatter anyway, because RH does not
support the filesystems in question.

Comment 6 Axel Thimm 2007-02-02 15:33:27 UTC
I could pick that up, but I'm not sure what the procedure is.

Comment 7 Jarod Wilson 2007-02-04 15:16:04 UTC
We've also got one of the XFS developers who was interested in taking this package over... Eric?

Comment 8 Eric Sandeen 2007-02-04 15:44:21 UTC
Sure I'll pick up xfsprogs and should try to get xfsdump in from extras too, I
Jarod, expect questions from me :)

Comment 9 Jarod Wilson 2007-02-04 20:15:05 UTC
Looks like Russel has done the last few updates to xfsprogs, so we should probably poke him too...

Axel, any objections to either Eric or Russell taking it over? Based on the changelog, this was originally 
pulled in from your packages, but both Eric and Russell come from SGI and still actively work on the XFS 

Comment 10 Axel Thimm 2007-02-04 20:22:35 UTC
Sure, I hadn't noticed that Eric and Russel were at RH now, they are both far
better suited for any XFS bits than I am.

Comment 11 Russell Cattelan 2007-02-04 22:39:40 UTC
I just updated fc5 fc6 and fc7 to xfsprogs 2.8.18

Comment 13 Kevin Fenzi 2007-06-20 20:50:11 UTC doesn't seem to be a valid account system email. 
Should that be Can you check and re-request?

Comment 14 Eric Sandeen 2007-09-12 15:06:50 UTC
closing this until cattelan has a fedora acct.  AFAIK I'm the lucky new owner of
xfsprogs, now.
