Severity: normal

Hi,

as I no longer use partimage myself, I hereby request a new maintainer
for partimage to take care of the package.
Even if the upstream development has more or less stopped it is imho a
useful tool worth keeping in the Debian archive.


Michael

Hi Fabrizio, hi Christof!

Thanks for your interest in partimage.
I'll CC the RFA the bug report so this discussion is public.

For anyone reading this bug report, both Fabrizio and Christof contacted me
privately and showed interest in adopting partimage.
While Christof contacted me first and in doubt I'd opt for the first come, first
serve basis, maybe you could consider joining forces.

That said, neither Fabrizio nor Christof has currently upload rights so they
would need a sponsor.

I also have to add, that the upstream development has basically stalled and
there is no (official) support for ext4. So I'd like to hand over the package to
someone who knows C++ as you can no longer rely on upstream to fix bugs for you
and you'd kinda have the role of an upstream developer.

As for the sources and the debian packaging: I haven't used a public VCS for
development, but I can upload it somewhere if there is interest.
Aside from that, the current packaging is available from the debian archive via
apt-get source partimage or
dget http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/p/partimage/partimage_0.6.8-1.dsc

Cheers,
Michael

Hi Michael,

I've no experience with C++ development, only with repackaging of packages.
If Fabrizio has development experience you can transfer partimage to him.

Christof
