Hi,

Since I've not been using Alpine for over a year, I cannot maintain
my aports[0] anymore.  Please, take care of them.

Farewell

caóc,

I'd be happy to help and take over some of those packages. I use micro
Emacs' and acpi on systems in producing, so I'm personally interested in
seeing at least those two packages continue to thrive.

Can anyone provide a brief on how maintainer ship of a package changes
hands?

My guess is you change my name and address in the APKBUILD file and push
it to the repository.  That's what I did back in the day reclaiming
unmaintained aports.

Caóc,

If that works for you then I'll send PR's for the packages I can take
over and list you as a contributor and change the maintainer to
myself?

If I understand correctly, a contributor is somebody to first send the
APKBUILD.  In cases of mg and acpi, I am not.  So if I'm listed as a
maintainer of a package and the contributor is another person, I don't
become the latter if I give up maintenance.

Really? I was under the impression that a contributor was just someone
who had contributed to the packaging. And that the maintainers were
the ones who made the calls on the package's status/upkeep.

If that's not the case though I'll go ahead and just substitute myself
as the maintainer and call it a day.
