Subject: [gentoo-dev] The future of the Sunrise project
Date: Mon, 06 Jun 2016 21:23:41
1 Hello, everyone.
3 It has recently came to my attention that things are quite bad with
4 the Sunrise project [1] lately. Most of the developers have left
5 the project, and it seems that the contributors have done the same.
6 The public reviewed repository has major QA issues and hasn't been
7 updated since mid-2015. The last non-developer commit to the private
8 repo also seems to come from mid-2015, followed only by a number of
9 removals and fixes done by Gentoo developers.
11 Therefore, I'd like to ask the following question: is it time to
12 announce the project dead, or do some developers want to revive it?
13 If the former, could someone try to contact last active contributors
14 and ask them if they'd like to move their ebuilds to ::gentoo
15 via proxy-maint?
17 I should point out that Sunrise has lost a lot of popularity to
18 proxy-maint, then also to GitHub pull requests (and the two combined).
19 The developers involved with those provide quite a good review
20 workflow, with the extra advantage of getting packages straight
21 into ::gentoo. I don't know how many users would be interested
22 in keeping them in ::sunrise if they could have them straight
23 in ::gentoo with similar (if not less...) effort.
25 Your thoughts?
