Re: [alpine-aports] [PATCH] community/php7: change maintainer

Hi Carlo,

The github's PR-s is not a panacea. The fact that even the PR patches are
merged in some strange order.

PR-s that fixes bugs or features from are hangs open
for a week. Instead of there are daily accepted many minor fixes in
testing/ packages and new small packages (like fonts).

It's not hard for me to stay a maintainer.
But I don't know how to make an adequate maintenance in this situation.
