Subject: [gentoo-dev] Portage team, Zac's development break and stepping down as lead
Date: Mon, 06 Jan 2014 05:38:18
This is a general call for developers to join the portage development

aka:  Recruiting Drive

If you have some "Good" python and/or bash skills and want/need to or
already know portage's internals. WE NEED YOU!

We have several non-developer contributors helping out, but it will be
very hard to match the productivity Zac has made over these past years.

For those that don't already know, I've pushed out a new release today.
Portage-2.2.8 has made it to the tree with many bug fixes.  Many of
which were fixed by contributors Sebastian Luther, Arfrever Frehtes
Taifersar Arahesis and Alexander Berntsen. A big "Thank You" to them for
helping to fill the gap. 

There are still more bugs to work on.  More to pin down their cause, so
please help where you can.

It seems for the immediate interim, I have somehow become temporary
lead.  While I have too many projects on the go to get deep into portage
coding work at the moment.  I will do what I can.  For those that can
fix some things, please send patch submittals to the gentoo-portage-dev
mail list.  There are several of us capable of reviewing the submissions
and when ready, merging them.

Once we get an indication that new volunteers are no longer coming
forward to join.  We will elect a new lead.

Those interested in joining, please subscribe to the gentoo-portage-dev
list and send an email stating what you can offer and any ideas you have
to improve portage's code base.
