Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Maintainer of current photo-album package?

Posted by Bart Teeuwisse on

while arch is a better CMS in the making than CVS it is no substitute for a package maintainer. The problem is not how to fork a package or how to get bits and pieces of a fork back into the canonial package. But rather the lack of a package maintainer who would use tools like arch or CVS to keep the canonial package up to date.

Bart, tell it to Linus. :) He was and is the primary "package maintainer" for the Linux kernel, but switched to a better version control system, one rather like Arch, in order to be able to accept more patches with less work. And to allow others to do the same as well.
