Subject: [gentoo-dev] Something to remember when using the new maintainer-* aliases
Date: Wed, 29 Jun 2005 19:59:45
1 Hi people,
3 I've already noticed a few people assigning to the new aliases, but
4 forgetting to put appropriate herds on the CC. This was mentioned in the
5 previous thread, but not everybody may have read that one.
7 So please keep in mind:
9 If a bug is submitted for a package of interest to a certain herd,
10 regardless whether the package is new or already in the tree and
11 without maintainer, it is usually best to put the herd on the CC.
13 That way if someone steps up to maintain the package and comments,
14 the herd is immediately notified. Also if the herd itself wants to take
15 a new package under its wing, it can reassign the bug.
17 Thanks,
18 Maurice.
