9 Hey,
11 thanks for your interest! I see there's a lot to do with openfortivpn.
12 First, there's a version bump available, and a relatively simply-looking
13 bug you could try to fix with the version bump,
16 Then you can call for a stabilization of a newer version,
17 net-vpn/openfortivpn
18 StableRequest: version 1.16.0: slot(0) no change in 161 days for
19 unstable keyword: [ ~amd64 ]
21 and after stabilization is done, you can attempt to remove the older
22 versions. Please see
24 for stabilization guide.
26 We prefer getting pull requests through Github, see
27 for a general guide into
28 that. If you use IRC, you can join #gentoo-dev-help on
29 network to get more guidance.
31 You can contribute to maintainer-needed packages without having to
32 become the maintainer. We do allow regular users to become maintainers
33 of packages they're interested in via the proxy-maint project,
35 but we'd first like to see some successful contributions and consistency
36 from you. As said, you can freely contribute to maintainer-needed
37 packages without having to become the maintainer.
