New maintainers / owners requested


#1

Hi all! I don’t really post, but I’ve been in Ember land, for… 7 years now? It’s been a while. Anyways, a whole bunch of y’all probably use some of my addons:

I’ve had increasingly little time to maintain any of these, and would love for the community to continue to use these, without having to wait months for anything to get done.

I have a strong inclination for these to be community rather than individually owned, since they are used by lots of Ember apps! However, I’m not sure how possible that is. I will happily transfer ownership of these repositories to another owner to keep them alive :blush: The only requirements are that the Contributor’s Covenant is kept intact on all of these repositories.

Please ask me your questions! I’ll try to answer them as timely as I can. Thanks! :heart:

This might be a useful place for these if anyone wants to take over maintenance: https://github.com/adopted-ember-addons


#3

@melsumner could you provide some help walking through the adoption process? :smiley:


#4

Sorry for the delayed response!

To transfer ownership to the adopted-ember-addons org, please follow the steps outlined in the GitHub documentation: https://help.github.com/articles/transferring-a-repository-owned-by-your-organization/

After the repo is moved to the new org, file an issue on that repo that lets everyone know that you’re looking for a new maintainer (or that you want to be the new maintainer) and tag me (melsumner) in it.

Thank you!!

Hi @melsumner I don’t have access to transfer the repositories since I’m not a member of adopted-ember-addons. I can add you as an admin on my repos if that’s easier!

Thanks!!


#6

@tce sorry- can you transfer it to me(melsumner or melaniersumner@gmail.com) and then I’ll transfer it to the org. Who is the person who wants to maintain it? Do you have someone yet?


#7

Thanks @melsumner! :smile:

There is one active person interested in maintaining ember-file-upload I think- he responded to the Github issue. https://github.com/tim-evans/ember-file-upload/issues/190

I don’t have anyone in mind or anyone interested for the moment for any others. I would love to see folks from the community get involved to grow a supportive community around these addons; I do not have the time to support these in the way that people are requesting them to be. :sweat_smile:

There is also additional npm publish rights, which can be arranged.
