&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; I would be very pleased to maintain this package:<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; app-doc/repodoc<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Is there any chance I can maintain this package?. What do<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; I have to do?.<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; You could provide unified patches to the ebuilds to fix the four<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; outstanding bugs[1] with the package. Someone should CC themselves on<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; those bugs who has commit access for the thing to work, of course.<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; Maybe the live (-9999) ebuild could use some work too.<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt;<br>

&gt; &gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; Thank you very much for pointing me in the right direction.<br>
&gt; &gt; I&#39;ll begin to work in those bugs.<br>
&gt; &gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; Cheers.<br>
&gt; &gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; Ok, then I won&#39;t mask this package for removal ( I was about to do it right<br>
&gt; now when I accidentally remembered this thread ) for now. If the bugs are<br>
&gt; still unresolved after 30 days I will have to mask it for removal. In the<br>
&gt; meantime, if you have working patches for the repodoc bugs [1], I can commit<br>
&gt; them for you and proxy this package for you until you gain tree access<br>

</div></div>Thank you for your help in trying to get the app-doc/repodoc package<br>
back to live :-)<br>
<br>
I&#39;ve found some information on this package:<br>
<br>
1. I&#39;ve contacted Fernando Pereda (ferdy), one of the authors of<br>
   repodoc. He told me (as expected) that this package is no longer<br>
   maintained. He recommends to find out if the translatos are<br>
   currently using this package (seems very reasonable).<br>
   Besides, the package is not very secure, since it allows to run<br>
   commands by using a specially modify doc.<br>
   It is slow and the technologies used (bash and sed) are not the<br>
   proper ones to manage XML.<br>
<br>
2. I&#39;ve pinged the gentoo-translators maillist [1] to find<br>
   translators who are using this package. I&#39;ve got only one<br>
   negative answer in a week or so.<br>
<br>
3. I&#39;ve taken a look at the package&#39;s unresolved bugs:<br>
   197617 - Seems tough to fix, according to yoswink and neysx<br>
            comments.<br>
   297946 - I&#39;ve posted a comment [2] in this bug. No answer at<br>
            the moment.<br>
   297947 - Haven&#39;t check yet.<br>
   299753 - Seems easy to fix.<br>
<br>
So, IMO you can mark it for removal.<br>
<br>
Regards.<br>
