10 We can talk about a council email, but in general anybody can
11 co-maintain anything in Gentoo without anybody's blessing. I don't
12 think we need to treat this situation any differently than any other.
13 I think the only real question as far as maintainership goes is
14 whether he is gone for good or not, in which case existing packages to
15 go maintainer-needed.
17 If somebody wants to start co-maintaining some of those packages today
18 they don't need to wait for a council blessing. They should just add
19 themselves to the metadata. That doesn't preclude hasufell from
20 continuing to co-maintain when he returns.
