Subject: RFA: libcgroup -- Library to control and monitor control groups
Date: Wed, 5 Dec 2012 16:17:36 -0500
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I would really like to have the necessary time to work on this package, but
unfortunately I can't do everything.

If you're interested in adopting this package, please do so.  I'm also happy to
co-work on the package or accept contributions in any form.  Mostly, I don't
want to stand in the way of someone that has the time that this package
requires.

The package description is:

    Control Groups provide a mechanism for aggregating/partitioning sets of tasks,
    and all their future children, into hierarchical groups with specialized
    behaviour.

    This library allows applications to manipulate, control, administrate and
    monitor control groups and the associated controllers.

groups
owner 695231 !

Hi Jon,
I'm intending to take libcgroup over. Recently I have a lot of work, so
I will be able to work on this only around Xmas.

Will you sponsor the future uploads or, even better, will you allow me
to do it directly as I'm DM?

Thanks for your work!
Cheers,
Tomasz

Absolutely, I love this plan!  I'll sponsor a few uploads and if things look
good then it's all yours.

Here is some fair warning: libcgroup is a bit of a nightmare at the moment.
Both from a packaging standpoint (the initscripts are no longer installed), and
also from an upstream development standpoint (at least as it relates to debian
packaging).  Specifically, upstream seems to target fedora (and hence systemd)
for the most part.  Since it's a system-level library, the differences in
development environment make for some surprising headaches.  There are also some
inherent race conditions in the existing implementation.  I feel obligated to
mention these issues so that you know what you're getting into.  It is these
additional issues and time requirements that make the package too much for me at
the moment.

That said, I'm more than willing to advise and help out when/where I can.
Packaging development is maintained in collab-maint on alioth using git.  The
entire history is there.  So git-buildpackage is all you need.

If you're still interested, I will forward the relevant email threads I have had
with Serge - he has been maintaining this package in Ubuntu.  There are some
differences there, and I encourage you to compare.  Ideally we could create
a debian package that Ubuntu could merge without modification, but there is some
work to get to that point.

Let me know what you decided, and thanks for the interest!

Hi,
sorry for not taking libcgroup really. I was
rather occupied recently, I should have revoked
my ita on the package...
Well, if I have some time, I will work on it, but I have
other activities, some related to Debian as well.

Cheers,
Tomasz
