Subject: RFA: makedev -- creates device files in /dev
Date: Tue, 25 Aug 2009 17:34:29 -0600 (MDT)
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

Historically, makedev is how static entries in /dev were created... but most 
modern systems now use dynamic device discovery approaches such as that 
provided by udev.  The MAKEDEV script still has some utility for developers
of embedded systems and other special cases.

I recently transitioned makedev from 'required' to 'extra' in Debian, and as
I am no longer using it, I would prefer to no longer maintain it.

Since Eugene's prod two more months have passed, but there is still no
visible activity. Could you please comment?

Furthermore, I see more ITAs without any visible activity (CC'ed).
What about these?

Cheers,
Flo

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of makedev back from ITA
(Intent to Adopt) to O (Orphaned), because this bug hasn't seen any activity
during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting makedev, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 543592 ITA: makedev -- creates device files in /dev
 owner 543592 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITA for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
adopting the package. It is also a good idea to document your progress on this
ITA from time to time, by mailing <543592@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>

David,
I've seen your updated package on mentors.debian.net. So far, the
prepared package only has minimal changes, but before I sponsor
the upload I'd like to see a little bug triage first. Please go
through the existing makedev bugs, classify them, close obsolete
ones etc.

I think you should also work towards pruning down obsolete reverse 
dependencies on makedev.

Cheers,
        Moritz
