Package: wnpp

As said, the sarge kernels are frozen, and my contribution is not really
wanted anymore by the sarge team, so i am letting them take over this package
in order to focus on the post-sarge kernels.

This package is not really orphaned, since it should be maintained by the
kernel-team, but it would be nice if someone else could take over the build of
them.

Friendly,

Sven Luther

Subject: Who should be maintaining kernel-patch-powerpc-{2.4.27,2.6.8}?

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Hi Sven,

You've orphaned kernel-patch-powerpc-2.4.27 and kernel-patch-powerpc-2.6.8,
and I'm a bit confused by the text of #303024 and #303021

Who in your mind should be listed as the maintainer of these packages if not
either yourself or the Debian Kernel Team?

They've been orphaned for nearly a month, and they're at the top of the list
of packages that need to be uploaded with their maintainer set to the QA
group, but this doesn't seem to be the right thing to happen in my mind.

regards

Andrew

The debian kernel team will handle most stuff in the kernel-source package
itself, and i have arranged a powerpc pegasos box for simon horms, who should
be back in a week or two, and he will do the actual builds of the kernels. I
will help with the .config maintenance, as best i can, but all this should
really be automated, since the only thing needed is a rebuild in case a new
kernel-source is released.

I don't intent to do an upload with QA as kernel ackages are in deep freeze,
and affect d-i and stuff.

Furthermore the maintainers are already marked as the kernel maintainer team,
so ...

No off to the airport, see you in two days or so ...

IMHO, the packages should have the kernel team listed as the maintainer,
and myself (and anyone else who wants in) listed as uploaders. I wasn't
aware they had been orphened and I personally don't think this is
neccessary as they have just shifted from the sholders of one member
of the kernel team to another. I think we can close both of these
bugs, as although Sven has decided not to actively work on these
packages any more, they are still under the control of the kernel team 
for now.
